I've heard various stories causing instability issues while having it on... I mean does having it on at that overclock even that advantageous.

If anyone knows please drop a line..
Thanks in advance

Well hello,
If you are going to switch on turbo boost during overclocking or after overclocking the OC wont be stable because it increases the processor capability to do work. So if you are planning to overclock i would not switch it on. If you are not OCing then it is OK is you keep it switched on.
