    Hey guys, something really interesting:

    I wanted to create a profile with all overclocks off, and only XMP on(just for a fast basic starting point for when I start playing around in BIOS).
    Well in the screenshots, you can see everything is set to <Auto>, except XMP, AVX Instruction(set to 3), and LLC(set to 6)

    But when I run Validate in CPU-Z I still get around 5GHz
    Of course the speed stays lower when not under load, but I thought it should only boost to 4.7GHz when core freq is set to <auto>, as that is the 8700K's default boost.

    Maybe one of you other Maximus X owners, want to give it a try, and validate this finding?

    Cpuz caches your runs, watch the speed while it runs it will show the lower speed, but the val will be different
