Solved How to Turbo Boost to 3.6GHz?

That is the processor I have. It says that I can turbo boost it up to 3.6GHz but when I enable intel turbo boost I only get 3.4GHz. I went into the bios and manually set the clock speed to 3.6GHz but when I check a CPU monitoring program called CPU-Z it says I'm still at 3.4GHz. How do I get to the 3.6GHz speed my processor can apparently get to? Do I edit voltage? BTW all my fans are at 100% so my temps are looking good. I want Battlefield 3 running smooth as possible.

Type power settings into the start menu and if it on balanced change it to high performance, this may fix your issue. m 0 l Arsentic July 28, 2013 4:05:25 PM I have my settings on high performance.

BF3 will use all 4 cores. It will not go to 3.6 in a game, and even if it could it would make zero.difference in your FPS Share Arsentic July 28, 2013 4:12:05 PM Well that sucks I'm trying to devout all my PC power to the game I'm playing.
