I have an i5-8600k with an Asus Z390-F motherboard and i can't get to the boost clock, when i look in my windows pc properties my cpu is described as an "i5-8600k @ 3.60GHz 3.60 GHz" (no typo error)

Thank you for helping me out

Windows baked in software for reading frequency is inaccurate. Try CPUz or Hwmonitor.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - Asus DirectCU GTX 760 - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

I looked at the cores clock in hwmonitor during stress tests and benchmarks but didnt manage to get higher than 3.6 GHz

It feels like my computer thinks the cpu isn't compatible with turbo boost

The speed it boosts to with a single core is different from the speed it boost to with all cores under load.


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project
