Do Sandy Bridge CPUs ever run @ advertised stock speeds?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 


Just curious, because my 2600k is either idling @ 1600mhz or going @ Turbo clocks which are always above 3.5ghz.

I've never seen it running @ the 3.4ghz Intel advertises.



NOTE: This thread IS NOT a complaint. Just mere curiosity.

Disable turbo mode/speedstep, yes.

Mine are disabled (even though the BIOS says otherwise, possible mobo failure), and it's 3.4Ghz.

Load the CPU with something multi-threaded. Turbo Boost won't kick in if you exceed something.

I thought even if you load up all the threads the turbo boost will still raise the frequency by one multiplier if it is still within the TDP?
