  4. How do you know it's not going into turbo mode? What method are you using to check this? I'd be willing to bet that it's going into turbo, and you just don't know it.
  5. it wont over clock itself if program uses all 4 cores if i had known that i woulda have gone with a higher processor. game has a benchmark and tells you what your computer is running at
  6. turbo mode is active but there is no dif in performance when running the game
  7. I can pretty much guarantee you that turbo mode is working and increasing performance. You can check with cpuz if you want.

    As for underperforming in a game, which game is it? Also, what graphics card do you have?
  8. nvidia 260m final fantasy XIV
