    [SOLVED] My CPU is at max clock speed when idle, but goes below base clock speed when under a heavy load.

    My issue is that when my PC is under a heavy load, the clock speeds actually go below my base clock speed, and when I'm at idle it stays around it's maximum but fluctuates quite a bit. My initial thoughts are that this is because of thermal throttling, but my temperatures are the same as they...

    Question i5-9400F refuses to boost to 4.1GHz on a single core.

    As expected, on all 6 cores, the speed never goes above 3.89GHz, which is normal. However, I expected it would reach the advertised 4.1GHz on a single core, but if I run a benchmark of some sort, it will only go to 4.08GHz max, never above that. Is this expected behavior?
