Hello! I have installed the Intel Power Gadget utility and i've realised that my CPU peaks at 3,7GHz on load instead of 4,9GHZ (turbo boost speed).I have attached my EFI folder.Could anyone give me some advice? Thank you!

This seems to be a settings in BIOS settings. What motherboard are you using? And BIOS version. Have you tried to set BIOS to default and only add the hackintosh needed settings? Have you enabled XMP I profile in BIOS? I have read about this on Windows forums and there is was related to a BIOS update. Like this forum post.

Thank you for your reply! I'm using the Gigabyte B360M D3H motherboard with the latest BIOS update and everything is fine under Windows.But under Mojave my cpu is peaking at 3.6Ghz. Yes, the XMP profile is set to 1 so my RAM sticks are running at full 2666Mhz speed.

What SMBIOS are you using? I would try other SMBIOS modell. Maybe look at what others are doing with 9700k:

My SMBIOS is set to iMac19,1 but sadly nothings changes with other SMBIOS (iMac14,2 or other) settings.
