Although if you were planning on ocing it, the turbo boost is not important. o1die a c 434 V Motherboard a c 158 à CPUs December 14, 2011 9:02:56 AM No. You need a board that will let you change the cpu multiplier. Turbo boost is the poor man's overclocking tool for non "k" cpus. That board is very expensive. If you don't need all it's features, then I would get something else. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
