How to set the i7 4771 to always run at 3.9 ghz ie turbo boost speed.

As the title suggests, I want to set my i7 4771 to always run at 3.9 ghz which is the turbo boost speed.

Now, I know a lot of you will say why did you get a non k model cpu if you wish to overclock but please don't because I can't be bothered to explain.

So if anyone can help me set up my i7 4771 to always run at 3.9 ghz, it would be appreciated.

Thanks.

  1. you don't.
  2. but you can so I will.
  3. My i7 4771 runs at 3.85 ghz all the time anyway, it falls to 3.83 for a few seconds once an hour or so.

    In other words, Im not asking much in keeping it up to 3.9 permanently.

    I already have an idea on how to do this but want to ask an expert.
  4. That extra .05 ghz is not going to change anything. Assuming proper cooling the CPU will decide how much it needs when it needs it, and it's pretty good at doing so. Just set windows to High Performance and let it do its job

    Or tell us the specific reason why you need to have it at 3.9 exactly

    *If there was a setting to do it then it would probably be in the CPU section of the BIOS, and would also possibly depend on what type of board you have
  5. Really unhelpful answers so far so I am going to ignore this post and just do it myself.
  6. all those answers are spot on. sorry you don't like them.

    I asked for advice on how to set it to run at 3.9 ghz and all I got was 1 guy whining about how I don't need to followed by him asking me why I want to.

    A complete waste of time.

    I have a good idea how to do what I want anyway without people wasting my time by not answering the question then whining.
  8. sounds like the biggest waste of time here is someone trying to overclock a cpu that doesn't overclock. you answered your own question in your first post.
  9. Also daswhilhelm, your answer was just plain wrong as well.

    You don't. lol are you kidding me.

    You can and everyone knows that so your answer was not only unhelpful as it didn't answer the question, it was wrong too and I shrugged it off as trolling.
  10. if everyone knows, why are you asking?
  11. Edited to remove insults.

    Its setting its turbo boost speed to be its normal speed but from your useless answer, you obviously don't get that.

    Not only that but before you even answered, I made a note in my initial post about not having useless people asking me stupid questions and yet you did thus proving yourself useless.

    By the way, I didn't answer my own question because I said nothing about the BCLK and changing the turbo boost options away from auto.

    Go back under your bridge troll.
  12. oh its not overclocking? interesting.
  13. Edited to remove insults.

    Read the question, did I ever ask can you do it?

    No, I asked how you do it to which I got your irrelevant and useless responses which had nothing to do with the question I had asked.

    I'm going to ignore the above exchange.

    Depending on your motherboard you should have an option known as MCE (Multi-Core Enhancement). That will allow your CPU to run at it's top speed on all threads simultaneously.

    again, "everyone knows". so you should be able to find this information quite easily. unless you are unable to google it.

    Btw before I stop looking at this post now that I have a real answer, do you see the difference between our answer and that of someone who actually knows what they are doing now.

    No problem. You might have to disable some power saving features if you want it to never downclock, stuff like SpeedStep. Should be in the BIOS somewhere under power saving settings, might have some C states or something; unfortunately I'm quite unfamiliar with intel's more recent power saving features hehe.
  20. Thanks man, I will do that later on when I have time.

    I am pretty tired and grumpy from work at the moment but your answer is exactly what I was looking for and I appreciate it so thanks again.

    Lol


    Pardon me for necrobumping this post, but I was wondering how your 4771 turned out when you were finally done adjusting the settings? What frequency were you able to get all the cores running at? Thx.
