    Turbo mode allows the multi to be increased to 25x if only a single core is being utilized. As more cores are utilized, the multi drops to avoid eclipsing the stock TDP of the CPU. What your seeing is perfectly normal.

    OHHHHHH ok! i thought all turbo did was up the multi to 22X for all cores.but that makes sense. in a single threaded app turbo mode turns the cpu i7-860 into an i5-660! i didnt know that thanks guys!
