  1. the turbo boost dont cost you anything, its 3.9 on one core, 3.5 on 4.
  2. So should i keep it normal at 3.5 or let it run at 3.9?
  3. Best answer
    turbo on
  4. Thanks, and what about Auto Overclocking features? Keep it on Auto?
  5. nah, you probably got stock cpu cooler. the turbo is ok built in feature from intel and is enough for most.
  6. Why would you pick the maximus formula if you do not plan to overclock? A cheaper motherboard would do pretty much the same.
  7. I got Corsair H100i as CPU cooler.
  8. Then your setup is ready for overclock - why not do it then? Oh well - Your choice.
    I think you should leave turbo boost on - you have good enough cooling for it
