Question about turbo boost of 2600k Tags: Homebuilt CPUs Turbo Boost Systems Last response: December 20, 2011 2:37 AM in Systems Share yazzy11 December 19, 2011 1:10:01 AM So I've been testing a Intel 2600k cpu under 100% load using prime95 and I get this result: [img=http://s8.postimage.org/4kyo9e8gl/Untitled.png] jpg image hosting I am slightly confused as it reads 3.5ghz, I thought it was meant to auto-boost to 3.8ghz when it needed too? Is this because it is a quad-core cpu and each core will boost up by .1ghz each?

The maximum for one core at stock would be 3.8. 2 cores it's... 3.6 maybe? You can change this of course in the BIOS, but then that's overclocking and may require better cooling.
