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.

Btw, I am getting 3.5 on all 4 cores.

A bit strange there, honestly, but not really a problem. quas June 29, 2012 3:59:55 AM I am going to make sure whether the CPU frequency monitor is functioning properly. At idle, it's 1.6 Ghz.
