Yeah I guess I'm still on the original i7-900 CPU's & X58 chipsets where things were a bit different - Overclocking i7 920 to 3.8-4ghz EX58-EXTREME

Be aware you can also affect how the processor runs (as well as system state regarding Power Management) through BIOS settings as well, which can override or affect the OS settings.

This is usually dealt with in CIE/EIST settings. Here's a good article here: Maximum PC Essentials: Ultimate BIOS Tweaking Guide - Page 3 | Maximum PC

What you might not know is the purpose of some of the more obscure CPU-related BIOS settings. Both C1E and EIST relate to power-saving techniques employed by Intel CPUs.
I appreciate the thought but I am uncertain at what you're getting at. I was talking about the software which I admit now is unclear but this was written after he was asking if you could disable the intel turbo boost monitor. Considering he has a K series I think he should overclock it as long as he feels comfortable and has adequate cooling.

OK, for the last time. The Intel Turbo Boost Technology Monitor is just that, a monitor, it has nothing to do with the Turbo Boost speed and will not affect it in any way. It just monitors it, it`s just a gadget that came along with Intels Turbo Boost Technology. You control your Turbo Boost speed in the bios. You do not need the monitor at all. You can also control it with your power plan, but that`s not the recommended or correct way to do it, in my and many others opinion.

As Gary has stated you can just use Cpu-z

And yes, you can disable the monitor, just choose not to have it run at startup or un install it all together.

Leave it as is, I doubt overclocking will make anything faster. Getting faster, RAM,e.g. 2133MHz might help.
