  • Frequency: 3.30 GHz (Turbo Mode 3.70GHz)

    I have just installed the i5-2500k with 8gig.

    I note on this site the spec for the i5-2500k states: Frequency: 3.30 GHz (Turbo Mode 3.70GHz) This is just for the pros', no motherboard stated.

    How can I switch to turbo mode?

    (Just for the record I use the Asus P8H67-M Pro M/B, yes I know, there is a turbo I can set in the bios)

    Have I got this totally wrong. (Newbie)

    You can't set it, it means how fast the processor runs when it is only using 1core, 4cores=3.3ghz, 1 core single thread app = 3.7, a two thread app may make it run at 3.5 for example

        If you look in CPU-Z, on 100% load with turbo enabled it will only show 3.4ghz - as that is the average over all 4 cores I think.

          They get a little boost when under load, you can of course overclock it.
          My local hospital has a sign which reads "This way for accidents and emergencies." Haven't people in hospital got enough to worry about without looking for further misfortune?

            This tells me everything, I'm learning all the time.

            I use the Asus P8H67-M Pro M/B which has some sort of GPU Boost. I don't think I can OC manualy. My pros' is (i5-2500K).

            I don't know about these things, I'm a newbie.

              Need a p67 or z68 board to OC the CPU really, you have the H67 mate which will support the graphics side of the chip.

              If you want to see the Turboboost in CPU-Z you'll need to put the CPU under load, using something like Prime95.
