Ok here is the deal I just bought modern parts and I'm not used to this whole turbo thing. I also don't get when I check cpu frequency I see like 4200+ but on post I see 3412. I used to run my old e6750 rig about 1GHz over stock and I didn't have a massive cooler like this rig has. I'm a little confused. I would like some help in where I'm going wrong and what I should believe.

Fractal Arc Midi case (great case btw)
Asus P8Z68-v LX (could be better but had to save money somewhere)
Intel i5 2500k
Cooler Master Hyper N520
Crucial HX650w
Crucial 2x4GB XMS3 1600
ATI 4500 series vid (wish I had better but oh well)

WD 150GB raptor boot and 320GB caviar and a cheap LG optical

Any help I can get would be appreciated and if you feel like you want to donate a vid card for the cause feel free...haha

Turbo boost is Intel's "automatic overclocking" scheme where if some cores aren't being used, it shuts them down and overclocks the others.

ok then...how do I know where I'm at? I'm assuming then that individual cores can be clocked separately? What can I use to see what my parts are doing?

You don't touch Turbo Boost, you tweak with the multipliers. And since I didn't opt for a 2500K, I don't have experience here. But there should be plenty of overclocking guides on the internet. A Google search came up with this one first: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/cpus/2 ... i5-2500k/1

And also http://www.anandtech.com/show/4083/the- ... 0-tested/3 for good measure.
