stable is stable
DragonFury wrote:Turbo is an ability that is built directly into the CPU from the manufacturer. what it does is this, (if you are not overclocking the CPU and leaving it stock) on those times when you are using the CPU on heavy loads the CPU will up the clock speed (by using a higher multiplier) to make the job your are doing go faster. It is a dynamic overclocking designed for non/new overclockers that want a bit more umpth out of their CPU's. this is about as simple as I can make it. If you planning on manual overclocking, Turbo becomes moot.

No, if you notice in the above BIOS screenshot, I left the base multiplier at stock 33x and raised the turbo multi to 47x. when in idle the CPU down clocks itself to 16x and as soon as there is any heavy workload it jumps up to 47x
the only way on overclocking these CPU's is by turbo'n in actuality these CPU's are not "unlocked multi" as I was told or read. instead intel only unlocked the turbo multiplier not the actual multiplier that we have on "Extreme CPU's". So I stand corrected.

Now I am getting told (in essence that I am an idiot) I do happen to be sitting on a 2600K CPU right this second, I have just completed two motherboard reviews. Both motherboards state that I cannot adjust the base multiplier (actual CPU) any higher then what the factory set it to. in this case a 34 base multiplier, I have tried upping the base multi higher then 34 and guess what no overclock on the CPU. I am not trying to argue with you, I am simply stating a fact that I am observing currently with my current computer set up. The 2600K or new 1155 CPUs are only performance based not enthusiast grade CPUs, from my experience the only CPU from Intel that could even remotely be able to adjust the Base multi is extreme series CPUs right now the only extreme CPU out on the market is on a socket 1366 platform.
