Hey, what mother board do you have? If it's an evga it has a feature in the bios that forces turbo to be on all the time...
and I'm pretty sure you can turn it off if you want...

Is this something I should want Enabled all the time?

Well it's definately not a bad thing...lol...it's there to keep your cpu running at max clock...which is nice in my opinion...but if you're one of those who likes his cpu to not use as much power at idle and stuff...if you are one of those who likes to use speed step and all to save power then maybe yeah...
Although I keep my turbo on all the time...a cheating way of gettnig your multiplier to be one notch higher all the time...lol...

btw, you still didn't tell me what motherboard you have...lol...
