Hi DBP, yes I've got both HWMonitor and iStat Menus 4 installed. The CPU typically idles at 1.58 GHz and appears to max at 3.66 GHz (3,663 MHz) running a 64-bit Geekbench test. I'll have to check your thread, as I do find this result surprising since Intel markets the i7-3770 at 3.4 GHz and up to 3.9 GHz turbo frequency.I see you have HWMonitor installed: what is the highest CPU frequency it reports? The turbo rate should be more than 3.4 GHz based on your Geekbench result.
The question of whether it turbos to 3900 MHz or to 3700 MHz is relevant to my thread about some boards slightly overclocking the 3770(non-K) automatically.
