hm, not my experience at all and I have R6EE with a 10980XE
You mean you cannot go above 4.7 even in BIOS?
what did you set in BIOS? maybe post a few images off Extreme menu and sub menu settings...
You need to set XMP (if you have XMP memory) or manual OC first to get access to all the intersting settings.
then go and set per core OC and then set each core multiplier individually... etc need the BIOS screen images to show what I mean...
if nothing works: maybe clear CMOS and start over to ensure you are starting clean...
I've been able to do 5GHz with some BIOS work of course (no sustainable though). Backed down to per core OC to something I'm comfortable with running 24/7 tests for days (folding at home hits the cores super hard with AVX and it will tell you if something is sustainable or not - AIDA64 etc are good too but does not really hammer the CPU the same way folding at home does for hours and hours in different AVX and non AVX ways).
my question didn't have anything to do with overclocking in BIOS. I stated, being on BIOS version 0401, using Intel extreme tuning utility. ..... the core ratio maxes at 80. But, on BIOS versions 0504, 0505, 0603 the max ratio is 47. I am not wanting to set this value in BIOS, the only thing I have changed in bios settings other than raid, was enabling XMP profile.
so back to my original question/s, why does this value change in the program when using different bios versions, and why after bios versions 0504 does the intel turbo boost technology application break function (also causing all cores to run a static frequency rather fluctuate when being used/ not used. thanks!
