Intel turbo boost

i have a intel i7 930 cpu.stock it is suppose to be 2.8ghz and turbo boost to 3.06ghz.
My frequency shows 2.8ghz in the bois and only turbo boost to 2.93ghz.
I have done a bios update and still wont work.
I have put the cpu under stress tests on 1 core or all 4 cores and it never goes to 3.06ghz.i used prime95 for cpu tests.
My qpi also does not display right on cpu-z in shows 2.5 instead of 4.8gt/s.

I don't understand it.
