Windows 7: Is it advisable to turn of turbo boost?

22 Jan 2012   #11

Windows 10 Pro. EFI boot partition, full EFI boot

That test won't exercise turbo-boost. Turbo-boost only comes on for a core when some of the cores are idle. Prime95 usually pushes all cores at the max., so turbo-boost won't activate.

If it is a mild overclock, then you are probably OK.

Should I disable turbo boost in my bios? And, or, maybe think of anything else?

Thanks in advance.
Yes it's advisable and if you decide to push your clocks to 5ghz then disabling HT is also advisable.

It's not an i7 Simmo, so it doesn't have HT.

Thank you all for your help, I got it running stable at 4.5
