i5 2500k Turbo not working.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have an i5 2500k and an MSI PH67S-C43. I bought this setup before I learned that the H67 is very overclock limited. There is a couple weird things about the system, the first is the Turbo boost doesn't work. It is enabled in the bios. The Cpu runs at 1600mhz at idle and 3395mhz under load. Even on single threaded apps the core speed will never go over 3395. The other thing is the multiplier in the bios is unlocked up to 37X so I can set the CPU to 3.7Ghz but CPU-Z still shows 3.4Ghz. The multiplier stays at 34X in CPU-Z regardless if I set it from 33-37. Is this normal for the H67 chipset? I'd be really happy to get the turbo boost working and even happier if I could get it to 3.7ghz before I end up upgrading to a P67 board.

From whatt I remember the h67 boards are not really used to support ocing, and I think once you of (even a small amout) the Turbo is turned off

I got the Turbo working by resetting the bios to optimized defaults. I'm still curious though, does anyone know of a way to overclock on an H67 chipset?

I'm pretty sure the h67 boards aren't really able to over. If you got the k version of the 2500 you're supposed to pair it with a p67 board :/

You can't. Need a P67/Z68 board.
