Alienware 17 R3, lost factory overclock

Hi,

After a BIOS update, it seems that I have lost the default overclock.

Before, my CPU showed 4.1Ghz, now it only shows 2.7Ghz, and I can feel a big difference while gaming.

Intel® Core? i7-6820HK

How can I get back to 4.1Ghz ?

Please let me know if you need more informations.

 

Thanks.

Thanks for your reply.

I checked the core temp during gaming, they never reach 50"C.

There is an option in bios to set overclock level. There are overclock levels with 3 being the highest overclock. 3 would probably not be stable and generate too much heat. You can try lower levels.
