    i7-7700HQ turbo boost problem & overclocking?


      I've recently bought a laptop with i7-7700HQ and its turbo boost is no where near the 3.8Ghz is supposed to be running at. instead its running at 3.3 Ghz and it never ever seems to go any higher than that.


      i tried overclocking the CPU but my computer instant shut down, i do not know why Its doing this. I don't no if it can be overclocked or what. I want to see if i can make it run at its maximum turbo boost of 3.8Ghz IMG_2014.JPG
