Yes, if you are talking about the GPU. It should be PCIe X16. What other adjustments have you made? An increase fron 4.2 to 6.3 is a significant increase, but should still be at least 7.5.
I'll go into the bios now and make the change to the GPU and get info on the settings for you.
Since this is a second hand PC did anyone think that the original owner put the video card in the wrong PCI slot?

Say a PCI x1 slot instead of the PCIx16?
Some cards will plug into the wrong slot but won't function properly.

Just a thought. Don't know if applicable in this case.

KhajiitDovakiin, Just a thought. Turn off your computer, open the side of your case. Just to the left (usually) of the CPU, you should find a connection from the PSU. It should have 2 x 4 pin connectors. make sure both 4 pin connectors are connected and properly seated, not just 1 4 pin.

Hopefully, someone with knowledge of Gigabyte boards will help you. Gigabyte uses different terminology for most of their bios settings than most manufacturers do. On my board default Vcore is 1.228. I am currently overclocked to 4.2, but this is what settings I have in bios. Everything should be at default except the Vcore.

Try this just so we can see what is happening. Open cpuz to the CPU tab. Go to start, in the search box type cmd, on the entry for cmd, right click it and select 'run as administrator'. In the window that appears after giving permission, copy and paste this into the window. sfc /scannow and press enter. While the scan is running for a few minutes, take a screenshot of the cpuz opened to the CPU tab. Also, a screenshot of the scan window when the scan is complete. The scan will put enough stress on the CPU to put it into turbo mode. The cpuz screenshot will show what it is doing while in turbo mode..

I have done that and attatched the screens.
At first it was getting about 3000+ Mhz then dropped down to the numbers as the scan went on

I will try to get pictures of inside my PC. I have asked someone with a camera to come and they haven't got here yet.
I have switched the GPU to PCIEx16 in the bios but it still says x1 in the CPU-Z

The CPU has the built in graphics. I'm not sure how but it would need to be disabled or the video card enabled some how.

Here is the moboard page.> GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-Z68AP-D3 (rev. 1.0)

Select downloads tab and enter OS and then select manuals where it says> Download type: Driver < This is default setting so choose manual in the drop down menu.
The manual will tell you how to enable the graphics card and may be useful for other info.

In the screenshots, your Vcore is way low. you are showing 0.88V and it should be around 1.228. I don't understand Gigabyte bios, but it appeared your Vcore was set to 0.9V in bios. Also, while the CPU should be in turbo mode it is showing a multiplier of X27 and it should be X37. The multiplier may be because the CPU is not getting enough voltage.

The manual will tell you how to enable the graphics card and may be useful for other info.
In the manual It says:

Init Display First
Specifies the first initiation of the monitor display from the installed PCI graphics card, PCI Express graphics card, or the onboard graphics.
PCI Sets the PCI graphics card as the first display. (Default)
Onboard Sets the onboard graphics as the first display.
PCIE x16 Sets the PCI Express graphics card on the PCIEX16 slot as the first display.
PCIE x8 Sets the PCI Express graphics card on the PCIEX8 slot as the first display. Onboard VGA
Enables or disables the onboard graphics function.
Auto
Allows you to set up a dual-display configuration in Windows 7 operating system. (Default)
Enable If No Ext PEG
Activates the onboard graphics only when no PCI Express graphics card is installed.
Always Enable
Always activates the onboard graphics, whether or not a PCI Express graphics card is installed.
If you wish to set up a dual-display configuration, set this item to Always Enable. On-Chip Frame Buffer Size
Frame buffer size is the total amount of system memory allocated solely for the onboard graphics controller. MS-DOS, for example, will use only this memory for display. Options are: 32MB+2MB for GTT ~ 480MB+2MB for GTT. (Default: 64MB+2MB for GTT)

Sorry for the late reply. Household is busy
Should I disable onboard VGA?

Good point Hop. The integrated GPU can run along side a PCI-based card but it seems like an extra load if the GPU isn't in use. The option to enable/disable should be in the BIOS. Also, as mentioned before, Intel allows setting of Long and Short Duration Turbo limits (Set by Wattage and Time). There's also a TDC current and a TDP power override. Any of these being set low would limit Turbo. And on the other side of the coin, Any of these set too high could cause CPU throttling. In my BIOS, the settings are under Performance > Processor Overrides > Turbo Boost Technology.
