Hi there!

First at all sorry for my bad language.


Few hours ago I buy FX 6300 BE. It should boost up from 3.5 to 4.1 GHZ.

Problem is... procesor dont do it. In CPU meter there is still 3.5GHZ even in stress test. I look BIOS, try with CnQ off/off, manualy set to x20.5 from AUTO. It should work.. but it dosnt. I run it at GA-990XA- UD3 motherboard with newest BIOS. I think its not temperature problem. I forced procesor too use only 3.0GHZ and boost mode to 3.5- still nothing.

Any idea WHY?

Because Turbo Boost is meant to function when you are running a program that runs on only one core, not in a stress test.

As black_zion indicated Turbo mode is for when the CPU is lightly loaded not with full load. It usually kicks in for a few seconds at a time when there are only a few cores in use.


Building a reliable PC involves more than just assembling the parts. You need to be able to configure all of the BIOS settings appropriately. This can be quite involved and frustrating as it can require a lot of trial and error with stress testing. It is however often the only means to get a 100% reliable PC.
