    Does anyone know of a menubar app or somethign that will report current cpu speed. Just want to know when my i5 is using it or not.

    In windows anyway, the turbo boost during a hanbrake encode lasts for seconds only. It sometimes even reads lower than the normal operating speed of the i7, which I thought was weird given that its at 100% utilization, and under the thermal spec.
