  1. If you OC with all cores at the same speed, it doesn't, really. It may appear that it does if you leave SpeedStep enabled (like I do) because it'll constantly change speeds, but with all cores at the same Turbo speed, that effectively disables the true function of Turbo.

  3. Not really sure what else to tell you because what I said pretty much explains it all.

    I suppose I can tell you that if you disable SpeedStep and set all cores to the same Turbo speed, you'll run at a constant speed (whatever speed you set it to). That can also be accomplished when setting the Power Plan in Windows to High Performance and leaving SpeedStep enabled.

    I don't even OC with Turbo myself, I just change the main multi, so Turbo is a non-factor in that case.
