I just use the "All Cores" setting in my BIOS. I will admit I have never actually checked if it's working in that way.

Ok I will check these settings, but does this apply to non K CPU's?

I just checked my BIOS it was called "Sync All Cores" I'll be honest I would expect it work regardless it's just for the Turbo afterall. I mean I am not OC'ing my 4970K at all just using that "tweak" so I get my 4.4 Turbo on all cores.

Yes, with a locked CPU, you should be able to do that. It just wont' let you go over a multiplier to 36. But you should be able to set it so that turbo boost goes up to 36 with all 4 cores loaded, unlike with just one loaded like the default turbo settings.

After some searching in my BIOS I found it,
did some benchmarking and for some reason it still runs at 3.27GHz in the taskmanager when I run 3d mark firestrike.:( (a small bclk OC because of my XMP profile)

Also ran valley and in the end it was reporting i5 6500 3192MHz. :(

Did I miss something?
In the BIOS?

i told you ... it report stock speed (3.5) and i run it at 4.4 (setting in bios and reading in CPU-Z )

and taskmanager also is not precise ... 4.31 TM reading 4.4 CPU-Z and HWInfo64 reading

I thought I remember reading in a news blurb about Intel was locking down that form of overclocking on the Skylake non-K chips. I might be wrong though.

Edit: Sounds like the Xeon 1240 V2 I tried the same on (force turbo on all cores) didn't budge for me it's locked down other than small 7 MHz bump to bclock.

I've been doing this very action on almost every CPU I've deployed since the 2000 series. Very rarely do I come across a board I build with that doesn't have a sync core/link for max multiplier. For a little extra and free performance boost its absolutely worth it.

Use OCCT, HWMonitor, Open Hardware Monitor or Intel XTU or AIDA to verify clocks and even for testing if you need.

Maybe there's something else going on if those programs fail to show the clocks...could be a reporting or UEFI issue. I would consider updating to latest stable UEFI release and/or clearing CMOS.

I haven't ran across an issue where this feature didn't work...but it could be likely different CPUs are set to respond differently to it. I'm curious of your results as you keep testing.

I have an older bios which still allows bclk overclocking.
Ok it's not about that, I have it set to 36 "per core" now to see if it makes any difference.

If the taskmanager cpu speeds are incorrect I have no way of knowing how fast it runs.:ohwell:

Just leave it as is I guess, per core 36 at all cores.

Ok a quick CPU stresstest results in 3374MHz on all cores, ok, faster then 3.27 but also no 3.6GHz...:ohwell:

Just read this on intel site:

"Due to varying power characteristics, some parts with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 may not achieve maximum turbo frequencies when running heavy workloads and using multiple cores concurrently.

Availability and frequency upside of Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 state depends upon a number of factors including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Type of workload
  • Number of active cores
  • Estimated current consumption
  • Estimated power consumption
  • Processor temperature"
http://www.intel.com/content/www/us...ology/turbo-boost/turbo-boost-technology.html

My temperatures are fine though, core temps staying below 50c under load.

Also tried Asus multicore enhancement to disabled, did not make a difference either, it's probably the Intel:

  • Type of workload
  • Number of active cores
  • Estimated current consumption
  • Estimated power consumption
My locked chip may not run faster with all cores at 36 because otherwise it's power usage will be over 65Watts?

Yeah that is the same setting I am using on mine but I always see "close" to my 4.4. I was running 3Dmark earlier as I just unlocked all the shaders on my Fury and it was saying 4.4398..I also use AIDA with my G19s so I have my clocks on my LCD all the time too. I will make a quick new page on it and have my core clocks on it and see for sure.

Edit: Yeah mine is definitely Turbo on all cores 4.4

That's because it's a 4790K. If paired with a capable board it can theoretically go to any multiplier it wants. This is not the case with the i5-6500.

@P4-630 As far as I know, "multi-core enhancement" was originally designed to allow Sandy Bridge / Ivy Bridge parts with Turbo Boost to reach a somewhat higher multiplier than their turbo tables suggested. This was known as "partially unlocked" and did not apply to i3s because they didn't have boost, but applied to traditionally locked i5s and i7s without -K nomenclature. Intel even had slides advertising this feature:



When Haswell came along, Intel took the feature away. Any family that is Haswell or later does not support the same thing. There was surely a lot of talk of MCE allowing later locked CPUs to reach their specified 1-core Turbo speed with all 4 cores, but it's not officially supported. Nowadays I'm sure MCE only refers to overclocking -K parts on H- chipsets.

For every Intel CPU now that does not have an unlocked multiplier, one can only try BCLK. But now that Intel has supposedly locked that down too, I'm not sure if deviating from the turbo table is possible anymore.

TL;DR Turbo Table is the law for locked SKUs. here is the relevant turbo table for Skylake i5s:

turbo table.png


If you don't have a i5-6600K, you don't get to deviate from the spec.


Just a kind reminder of how far Intel has fallen in the absence of competition from AMD. It used to be in the Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge era that you could save money buy going Xeon E3, but you pay for it by not enjoying the same Partial Unlock as i5s and i7s because E3s were fully locked. Now, none of these SKUs can go past their rated 4-core turbo speed, and you can't even buy E3s for 10-series chipset boards.

There it is ^. Thanks for the post tabascosauz

It's like having a locked Xeon with a different name now.

Idle it runs at the expected speed:

At load getting these clocks, so it's probably as @tabascosauz posted, 3.3 is max on for all 4 cores:ohwell::(

Well can't blame him myself since I thought the same for a Ivy Bridge Xeon. I misunderstood I would be allowed to force Turbo over all cores when in fact no. I found it interfered with the multiplier steps for a three core, and 2 core load when I tried forcing it to Turbo.

You can give it shot but I doubt your going to have a better chance with it on, pretty sure I tried that, and still no luck getting turbo on all 4.

Edit: That's the main reason I bought the i7-4790K, and passed the Xeon 1240 V2 to my brother.

No it had no effect on getting the full speed on all 4 cores, the speed stays at 3375MHz enabled or disabled.

But should I enable this for some other reason?

If the UEFI gives you the separate option to turn on XMP (which I'm sure it does) then I would just leave it disabled, your not missing anything else.

Multi core enhancement basically puts the highest turbo multiplier on all cores under load. Let's say you have a 3770k. The base frequency is 3.5ghz. Under normal circumstances, it will be at 3.9ghz if one or two cores are being stressed, 3.8ghz if 3 cores and being stressed, or 3.7ghz if all 4 are under stress. If you enable multi core enhancement, it automatically puts the turbo multiplier to 39 under any load situation, regardless of how many cores are being utilized. http://www.overclock.net/t/1308469/multi-core-enhancement-enabled-or-disabled

I even tried messing with Throttlestop at the time, and multipliers still wouldn't budge.
