When you have all cores loaded, they will not turbo. Turbo is for when you are only loading some cores and not others. So like 2 out of four cores will gain you some turbo. The highest turbo speed is achieved when you are only loading up one core.

Ok. But why is there still there a turbo boost frequency for 4 cores that is higher than the base clock? If all cores (4 cores) are loaded, would it stay at the base clock or at the 4-core turbo boost frequency?

By base clock, I mean 3.4GHz for the 2500K. I know about the 100MHz frequency and I call it "Bus Frequency" so as to avoid confusions.
