Re: Y500 Event ID 37 Task Category 7

Intel turbo boost disables itself when it finds that the application can run adequately on base frequency. Can you try to convert a large video file like an unprotected DVD to a mp4 file using handbrake video encoder and see if the turbo boost is active for the whole conversion time? For my CPU, turbo boost never turns itself off only when doing CPU intensive task. When gaming, turbo boost turns on and off too but only when it reaches 85 - 90 degrees. Like yours I don't get any FPS drops when this happens while gaming.
