intel turbo boost

I have an i5 3470 @ 3.2GHz with turbo to 3.6 but i saw in the msi bios that intel turbo boost is disabled.

my question is if i enable it is there anything else that i need to do in the bios to make sure that it will work properly,

is it really as easy as just switching disabled to enabled?

    Yes, just enable it. If you have a "Z77" motherboard, you should actually be able to run it at 4GHz.
