    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?
  4. [SOLVED] Is lowering turbo boost max power & short max power safe? what does it do?

    An image from Intel XTU: Does this decrease clock speed if there is no power? what happens if I set Turbo Boost Short Power Max and Turbo Boost Power Max the same vailue like 65w? does this make short power max useless? (I'm experimenting)

    [SOLVED] can I make my CPU run at regular speeds while having max processor state capped?

    When I have my max processor state capped, the speeds my system is able to run are capped too. 95% cap only lets me run at 2.09GHz, 99% cap only lets me run at 2.19GHz while my CPU is capable of turbo boosting to 4GHz. When I uncap it, I have power limit throttling issues and a lot of CPU...
