ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 Question(s)

Hello,

My rig:

Case: Antec 300
MOBO: ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3
CPU: AMD Phenom II x6 1100T (Stock clock @ 3.4GHz)
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 2x4GB (10666MHz)
GFX: Galaxy Nvidia GTX 550Ti
PSU: Corsair GS600

My question is, one the motherboard and in the bios, there is a setting for TurboBoost and Core Unlocker, do I really need that on? I do not plan to overclock. Is it best to leave it on or shut it off? I honestly do not ever plan on using it.

Another question, in my BIOS, it automattically sets my RAM speed to 1333MHz and does not have an option to go lower? Is it overclocking my RAM? In CPU-Z it is set at 1066Mhz.

This is my first custom-built. I have owned a Dell E521 for years, and I am looking for some good advice, somewhat noobish/scared of messing up this rig, lol.

  1. Leave the turbo core on http://www.anandtech.com/show/3641/amd-divulges-phenom-ii-x6-secrets-turbo-core-enabled
    The core unlocker disabled since your X6 is a native X6 which has no hidden cores.
