Hi all,
 
I am honestly out of ideas at this point. I have been doing IT work for 21 years and have never had this issue. I have a overclock set in bios on my X99 with a 5960x and it has worked since 2015 then all of a sudden it does not anymore. I have it set to 4.4ghz and all custom voltages and ram speeds. It shows in bios that I am all good to go and windows shows 3ghz no matter what as well as no ram of nothing. The only thing that makes it to windows is my 1.35v core voltage. This has me baffled. I have made another windows install fresh to see if my windows had an issue and still having the same issue. If anyone has ever had this issue I will try anything. This is so frustrating.
 
Thanks

    Sounds like maybe the Windows KB4100347 Intel CPU microcode update that kills overclocking on some CPUs got installed..Open Windows Update, then View Update History, then Uninstall Updates and see if it's in the list of updates you can right-click to uninstall..Another update may have got installed that kills overclocking too.
     
     
    There's ways to hide and block most updates without totally disabling Windows Update, more on that later..But you can turn on Metered Connection for now in your network properties to stop most updates from auto-downloading and installing..You can also Pause Updates within Windows Update.

    Thanks this seems to be it. I have also found another windows update that's killing performance as well in gaming and some Cuda-enabled programs. Sometimes I get tempted to go back to Linux mainly. Then I remember that it's just not feasible yet. Thanks again bob.

    Cool 

    I set my internet connection to 'Metered' and then run wushowhide tool to check for Windows Updates first before running the normal Windows Update..Then I can hide (or show again) an update from the normal Windows Update before running it..Then I run the normal Windows Update to download/install other updates..I have wushowhide set to run on a schedule (8am every day) by creating a basic task (with highest privileges) in Task Scheduler..That gives me a chance to research updates to see what they're all about and if other ppl have issues before installing them..I also choose not to check for updates during the Windows install, I do that myself later just exactly for that reason..I hate that Win10 will install every non-optional update that comes down the pipeline as opposed to older Windows versions where you could pick and choose.

    You can hide that KB4100347 update forever and ever using the wushowhide tool from Micro$haft.
