Is Intel Turbo Boost just "lite overclocking" ?

Hi all, I have read up on what Intel turbo boost is. Sounds like I can get a bit more performance without doing any actual OC.

Here is my question:
I don't plan to OC my i5-3570k just yet. I have only OC my GPU a bit. Is it safe to leave the Turn Boost mode on? Or would that wear out the CPU?

Here are my specs:

i5-3570k
HD 7950
8 gb ram
Win 8 64-bit
