Overclocking/Turbo Boosting

I'm only 1 week in with my new NUC Skull Canyon, I am just testing it's capability in software I intend to use most frequently (Adobe photography products, LR, PS etc). Thus far I am pleasantly please, there is just one Plugin (Topaz Simplify 4) that seems to really suffer from brush stroke lag and thinking time. It's pretty curious because there other plugins work fine.

Anyway, it made me think about 'Turbo boost' or overclocking, something I have never done before. I wouldn't know where to start, what software to use or anything. I'm guessing Turbo boost occurs when the KY needs it? ie it's automatic? or not? Do i need specific Intel programs to overclock or activate turbo mode? I'm just curious if overclocking for 10-15mins whilst in this particular editor/plugin will make a difference or not.

TIA!

Hello

 

 

Thank you for joining the community.

 

 

In the case of the on the Intel® turbo boost technology is automatic depending on workload demand you are right with that part

 

 

In case of the overcooking for the NUC this following link can provide you with guidance the matter; however, we have to take into consideration that overcooking can produce unpredictable results and keep in mind that Intel does not support overlooking and any changes that are going to be made during the process are under your responsibility

Thanks Leonardo

I just skimmed very quickly through this pdf, it looks as tho you have to do some initial BIOS setting up and configuring for it first to be able to work, but then after can you actually use desktop software to toggle the overclocking? I saw a sceen shot of CPU-Z (software I am aware of but limited in usuage), I'm just trying to ascertain if the toggling of the overclocking is something that can be turned on and off easily from a desktop program (such as CAM) or whether it is solely toggled on and off via the BIOS (therefore reboots are required between toggling of overclocking and back to normal).

Cheers!

Hello

 

 

Thank you for your response, allowed me to share with you that Intel does not have a tool/software to turn on and off the overclocking since this is a feature the we do not support, you can take a look to the Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility that can help you to monitor the system refer to the following link
