OP stop freaking out... Just run HWINFO and monitor the clockspeed when you have a game running (as opposed to intel burn test)

You know that turbo boost is based on thermal limits? It's not a "i'm going to turbo up at any point in time the user feels its slow"

Ah, well that I didn't know. As of Monday I've installed a Hyper 212 Evo and that has my idle temps at 28C and as you can see in above post, 39C when at 100% CPU usage. So yeah, I think I might run some steam games and see if it hits turbo, if it doesn't, I'll be back here shortly asking for help.

My main question was though, in CPUZ where it says my multiplier is 16, shouldn't it be "( 16 - 32 )"???

The Fett, have you messed with any BIOS settings at all?

Haven't touched my BIOS settings. I went in and checked them and they looked fine and then I hit F7 which resets them to their defaults to make sure nothing was wrong.

Download HWinfo64 and see what the clocks speed and temps say there. That is so strange.

Just Dl'd HWInfo and have come across something interesting.

Ran an IntelBurn test and HWInfo showed a clock speed of 3655.2Mhz with acceptable temps but now when it's idling the speeds are jumping from 1600 to 3600 on different cores. Is that normal?

CPUZ is still screwed and showing a clock speed of 1600 no matter what the CPU usage

Yep that's the Turbo feature, on a friends pc i was building 2 days ago it had a i5-3570 and it showed 16x on first core 32x on second or something and the last 2 cores had 38x

weirdest thing i ever seen since mine always runs at fixed 4.6Ghz on all cores biggrin.gif

By any chance are you running Real Temp in the background? it used to remove my overclock while it was open, maybe something similar is happening to you.

yeah, it's making me a bit anxious for some reason but if that seems to be a normal thing where the clock speeds jump from core to core, then it should be fine. I mean, it's definitely hitting turbo when I run Intel Burn and HWInfo; CPU-Z is still screwed up.

Nah, haven't even downloaded Real Temp.

Bit of an update. I changed the power settings on my computer to balanced (from custom) and I'm running at normal idle speeds and volts without speed jumps on any of the cores. After waking the computer or restarting it though, it does go back to its old ways and has speed jumps on the cores, but if I go back to control panel and reset the power option to balanced, things revert.
