    Turbo boost occurs in short bursts. Your CPU might reach 2.6, but it will never stay there long as this is a dynamically switching process. When in turbo boost your CPU goes beyond its standard TDP consumption of 15w and generates more heat. As a rule therefore, those bursts only occur when needed in as short as possible cycles. The tool that you are using to measure clock speed probably is not capable of displaying that much fine detail. The fact that it boosts to 2.4 already indicates that your turbo boost is working fine. I would leave it at that :)

    I remember when PCs had a turbo button on the front. Oh the memories.
