Is this a good CPU?

Max turbo for one core is 3.7Ghz.

 

Maybe it's max turbo for all cores, I have no idea.

I used to be quite active here.

To answer the question in your thread title, we need to know what you're using it for. It's a Haswel CPU, so yes...  It's a good CPU.

Basically, when your CPU is under heavy load, it will turbo up to 3.7ghz. Under normal operation it will cap out at 3.3

That's all you need to know. It's a beast.

Yes that's a decent CPU

Q: Do I have a virus?!
A: If you didn't click a sketchy email, haven't left your computer physically open to attack, haven't downloaded anything sketchy/free, know that your software hasn't been exploited in a new hack, then the answer is: probably not.

 

Q: What email/VPN should I use?
A: Proton mail and VPN are the best for email and VPNs respectively. (They're free in a good way)

 

Q: How can I stay anonymous on the (deep/dark) webzz???....

A: By learning how to de-anonymize everyone else; if you can do that, then you know what to do for yourself.

 

Q: What Linux distro is best for x y z?

A: Lubuntu for things with little processing power, Ubuntu for normal PCs, and if you need to do anything else then it's best if you do the research yourself.

 

Q: Why is my Linux giving me x y z error?

A: Have you not googled it? Are you sure StackOverflow doesn't have an answer? Does the error tell you what's wrong? If the answer is no to all of those, message me.

I have this and it says 3.30GHz as base... But what on earth is max turbo frequency? It says 3.70GHz... Can I somewhat make my CPU go up to 3.70GHz... If so, how?

depend on the motherboard some of them will allow you to lock the turbo to all 4 cores but not all of them do...and if they don,t you can have one core turbo to 3.7ghz, 2 cores can turbo to 3.6ghz and 4 cores will turbo to 3.5ghz (i think)

Turbo boost means that your processor will automatically adjust and increase its clock speed when needed. Since it is a non k series processor you cannot overclock it or in other words increase its frequency... Hopefully that helped.
