Is there anyway to force a 9700f to run at boost speeds.

Hi, I want to know if you can make an i7 9700f run at boost speeds all the time for max performance? I'm not that knowledgeable but I am competent so if someone can tell me how I can figure it out. It would greatly help my new build. Thanks in advance.

Honestly I don't see a point in this, your computer runs at boost speeds when it needs and can use the extra power. Running at max boost while reading email is kind of pointless, you won't read your email any faster.

In lot of applications it is pointless but for others it is essential. 

 

I had to remove my all core 5 and 5.1ghz overclocks on my i7 8086ks.  This was for my modded building games like Space Engineers than use the Havok physics engine. 

The most affected vanilla games were ones that use lots of CPU like AC:O and games like SOTTR that use less ran exactly the same.

With AC:O I got stutter at 4k almost to the point of unplayable. It was an eye opener since I have read post about it but the game always ran perfect for me. The difference was only 7 frames. 

 

Without the overclock my modded games have become rough. To get them smooth again I either have to remove content or upgrade my CPUs. The games like frequency so I need a CPU that can maintain at least 5ghz an two cores to be a side grade and 5.35mhz to be an upgrade. 

This may take a few years.

Just look for Youtube videos on overclocking that feature your motherboard and CPU.  That is what I do if I am overclocking a CPU/motherboard combo for the first time.
