So my i7-4790k has a base freq of 4.00 GHz and Turbo Boost freq of 4.4 GHz.
Can somebody say to me why if i have it set from the power plan in windows to balanced mode it goes under 4.00 Ghz in Idle.
But when i have it on Performance mode it goes at 4.4 GHz even in idle.
What i try to say that it nevers hits that 4.00 GHz base freq and stay there.
Is it normal?

Sounds OK to me.
Balanced mode allows Intel power saving features like speed step to lower the power usage.
