Solved I5-3550 Turbo Boost Tags: CPUs Stress Test Turbo Boost Intel i5 Last response: March 27, 2013 3:54 PM in CPUs Share quas June 28, 2012 3:40:56 PM Hi all, Intel says i5-3550 Turbo Boost up to 3.7GHz. When I try to stress-test with Folding@Home, it reaches 3.5GHz and remains constant at this speed. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your response.
