AMD Phenom II x6 1100t Black Edition only @ 2600MHz?


I am new to overclocking, and I want to increase the frame rate in FSX/P3D which I know is CPU hungry software.

I have an ASUS M4N98TD EVO Mobo anda Zotac GTX480 GPU. I installed Turbo V from Asus to overclock the CPU (I tried AMD OverDrive, but the mobo does not have the AMD chipset, as I used to run 2xGTX480's in SLi, and the mobo is designed for NVidia SLi).

I also downloaded CPU-Z and Prime95 to stress test. I started Turbo V in Race Car mode and got 2519MHz max, Jet Plane 2577Mhz max and Rocket 2618Mhz max?

The CPU is meant to be 3300MHz standard, so why am I only getting 2600MHz when overclocked?

Any help would be much appreciated.

  1. Is that CPU speed at idle or when stressed?
