Has anyone installed i7 4790k in to a HP Z230 successfully?

you really need to start paying attention when reading...................
as per the intel specs, 3.6 is BASE frequency, with 4.0 being the max TURBO boost frequency

and again it seems you replied without reading the links i provided that go into detail on what turbo boost is
i also included the intel cpu link that shows the 4090 cpu specs , including the base/turbo frequencies
and again,.................one last time, the only difference between a Intel 4090 and a 4090K is that the "K" suffix cpu's have a unlocked multiplier which allows some (not the z workstations) performance/enthusiast motherboards via the bios, to increase the multiplier ratio which results in a possible overclock of the cpu base frequency not all cpu's will overclock, the "K" suffix simply allows you to try a overclock
please READ this link:

why not try looking at the intel web page link that i previously provided
and look at the two lines marked base frequency (3.60) and turbo frequency (4.00)
then read the second link i provided that explains in detail what turbo boost is and how it works
those two links will go a long way in getting you to understand how modern cpu's overclock and why a "K" suffix cpu is a poor choice for the z230 pricewise
