The highest single core boost I get running Cenibench 20 is 4.1xx I think one time it made it to 4.2 on one core. This motherboard is a replacement Asus sent from an RMA. It is a Asus Crosshair VIII Hero x570 wifi. While I was waiting (forever) for the board I sold my 3900x and bought a 3950X. Either the board or the CPU or both are bad, the 3900x was much faster on Cenibench and TimeSpy. This board wont even let me set it to Asuis Optimal. It freezes right in the BIIOS Menu.
