At stock the i7 2600K runs @ 3.4 ghz, but will turbo up to 3.8 for 1 core, 3.7 ghz for 2 cores....Is it possible to OC to something like 4.6 ghz and still use it, i.e 5 ghz for one core, 4.9 ghz for 2? Or is it pretty much locked when you up the muliplier?

When you overclock, you are actually using Turbo Boost to do it. It just sets all the cores to the speed you chose for the overclock.

Yeah that's what I thought. I heard a few people online saying they had an OC AND a turbo boost going on and it kinda confused me
