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.


Technical ignorance is NOT a destiny it is a choice. Do your homework so that you can make technically informed decisions and not be duped by advertising hype or mis-information stated as fact when its not.
