The e3-1230v3 I ran at 3.8ghz and e3-1231v1 has +100mhz of clock speed, that is why I hoped to run it at 3.9ghz or so.
Unfortunately this is not the case. For whatever reason I am not able to run all four cores at maximum turbo boost speed of 3.8ghz.
The motherboard BIOS and tuning application both show that 36 is the maximum cpu clock multiplier when all four cores are enabled.
I tried to disable all kind of power or thermal throtlling, but no luck. The maximum Cinebench 11.5 score was 8.08pts it is less of what my old e3-1230v3 was capable of.
I know, e3-1231v3 is not meant to be overclocked, but I run some virtual machines, and lots of applications at the same time that is why I would like to squeeze some more performance out of it, especially if keep in mind that e3-1230v3 was running at 3.8ghz with 8.40pts in Cinebench 11.5.
I am not sure, but it seems like the motherboard is the reason why I cannot tune up the cpu.
After all of these I just left my cpu run at its stock speed. In Cinebench 11.5 e3-1231v3 scores 7.87pts.
