Hey,

So I recently noticed that my i7 4790 (Not K) Isn't getting to a turbo boost frequency of 4.0Ghz but rather topping out at 3.8Ghz
Is there a solution to this? I assume it has something to do with the iMac 14,2 SMBIOS I am using and the slightly different CPU choice from a 4790K which would have better out of the box support.
I'll include a config property list.

Many thanks to whoever might have a solution or will work with me on this.

Hi...i am a new user here. As per my knowledge If you want to attain max single speed, you have to kill as many processes as feasible. I think I had to bring the processes down to below 60 before mine would reluctantly run the max single core frequency, and even then it would fluctuate 100 MHz or so.
