good point, hadn't thought of that, but as per your suggestion ran cinebench and yes it seems like it's performing like 4.2ghz should.
while looking arround trying to find an explanation, I realized when I set my memory to XMP 1600 it automatically also set it to 1.5v even tho the memory is only rated for 1.65v...its like there is a helpful little ghost in my PC doing nice little optimization for me without being asked to....IT'S VERY ODD, wonder if its a new ASUS feature? but if it was You'd think it would have a little more than zero documentation on it...
