I am running an Intel i7 i870 CPU on an Intel DP55KG motherboard.
I downloaded the Turbo Boost monitor, readme below:
And I only see Turbo Boost reach 3.46GHz, never above that?
I am using a good aftermarket cooler and have good temps in the case, any ideas?
Using CPU burn in I did see it hit 3.6ghz for only for a < 1 second (a few times), it seems to hover around 3.4ghz, interesting, anyone else monitor their turbo boost rates?
You only get 3.6 when there's 1 core in use, this is hard to do as there is normally lots of programs running in the background that take a little CPU, this then get spread on to othercores and lowers the speed.
