1. normal and designed to do so. It is called boost/cstate
2. cpu speed is dynamic based on load, turning off advanced features is NOT the answer
3. not a BE edition so Multi is locked on 1055T
4. turn on all the bells and whistles and use a game in screened mode to watch how boost kicks in.
5. Boost HTT reference clock to gain a OC base clocked speed.
6. in order for clock speeds to lock down (not advisable) Boost and cstate CnQ cpu thermal throttle must be turned off at the same time.
So many people keep trying to OC these things like there a deneb, for the love of god they don't even share the same architecture. They are total new architecture so you would be well advised to stop trying to OC the chip like the older phenom II class.
allow me to elaborate cstate and boost features.
FSB/multi/vcore/North Bridge speeds are dynamically controlled based on need
Want to see the max base clock on all cores then lock all core to 100% load.
want to see boost in action ? Then load up a game or app known to use boost.
All info needed can be found here
FYI clearly every board manufacture has there own naming scheme for these options mentioned, it is up to you to figure out what is what.
Advanced c state & Boost are new to the T class.
Now if you are just trying to have some fun with finding max stable OC for a overclocking fun time. Turn off Boost and c state at the same time as well as all other power saving options in bios to get all cores to lock down full time.
This is highly not advisable, the CPU was not meant to be run this way more then just occasional.
the sweet spot for the 1055T is to use a base clock of 3.4 Ghz 1.35 volt vcore with boost and c state and CnQ. Making for a max boost speed of 3.8 Ghz.
This will need to be done via HTT reference clock.
