I have a alienware motherboard and a i7 3.4ghz and i found out i can boost it to or "turbo boost" it to 4.1ghz but i have to turn up my fans in my case the temps reach like 50-65c and i play bf3 and high end games with a radeon hd 6990 and i was wondering if it was worth boosting it or is 3.4 ghz good and what does that .7 ghz actually give me like 10 fps or other gaming experience changes.

to find out how much of a difference .7ghz makes, you could do a before and after benchmark. but if you are running an i7@3.4, i dont think you would be bottlenecking that card, so you probably wouldnt notice much of a difference

intel turbo boost should work by default(you dont need turn it on),but if you mean overclocking, i advise to dont do overclocking unless you need it ,but if you want to know how much faster with overclocking i7-2600k (which its a little bit slower than i7-3770k)here is all you need to know
