Intel Turbo Boost caused freezing/lockups
So Intel Turbo Boost was causing my computer to freeze and lockup under cpu stress, fans would go max RPM, power to usb ports were gone, even prevented me from accessing bios for a bit, did a cmos battery reset and restored defaults, disabled the turbo boost and stress tests were fine.
Rig is 990x, dx58og mobo, 16g ddr3 ballistix (2 sticks of 8), gtx 1070 ftw acx 3.0, tx850w corsair, h60 corsair liquid cooler. Got it from my pops who had it for a few years.
Should this be an indication that this cpu is unable to overclock? Or were the factory settings turbo boost was using wrong? I ask because I can attempt to manually overclock it but just want to make sure that if factory turbo boost settings failed then is that indicative of this cpu in it's last years.
