I wouldn't base everything on this one test. Run another to confirm it's not using boost. I've got a laptop here that if I disable EIST then it won't clock-up at all, I think it had some weird behaviour with C states too. You can use something like HWInfo and/or Throttlestop to monitor what is going on, then put some load on the processor. Change values, rinse and repeat.
