Default New CPU question.

Hello guys. I recently bought a new CPU for my desktop AMD fx 8350 4.0 ghz 4.2 turbo, unlocked.

When i go to System it says that my processor speed is 3.7 ghz, i even checked CPUID it's at 3.7 ghz. Why is it not at 4.0?

CPU's reduce their clock speed at idle these days if you leave all default settings on. If you play a game it will bump up to 4.2

agree.

You can test it. Have CPUID open an run Core Damage
It should immediately increase to 4.2
