Hi guys, just installed my new i5 7400. I just did a stress test, temperatures never goes past 61, everything else looks ok. In the bios it says turbo targeted speed is 3500, but my cpu never goes past 3.3?Do you guys have any idea why this is happening?

Thank you for your time.

Make sure in the bios you have it set so that each cpu core can have its own frequency and that it isn't all set the same.

The turbo / speedstep feature allows you to run at a higher frequency on some cores while they other cores stay at normal or even a lower frequency so lightly threaded applications run faster on those higher frequency cores.

Edit: Also make sure the high performance power plan is set.
