i have a gigabyte ud3h z68 board and i want to turn on turbo boost for my i2500k. it is stock. do i just go into the bios and select turboboost on? do i need to change any other settings? i have OC'd before with my old e6750, but right now i'm not ready to OC the 2500k beyond what intel recommends. i have my own personal reasons for this.

next question is, with my 7850 slightly OC'd (factory OC), will turboboost even help me? and i am referencing playing BF3, too. thanks for any help.

1 - Yes just turn it on.
2 - Doubtful that it'll help much.

why wouldn't it help much? why would an OC help more (or would it)?

yes just turn it on - and it will turn the speed up if needed.

so does anyone know why it wouldn't help much? does bf3 not need extra cpu power? what's the difference between it and a real OC?

I know in some games the CPU is not such a big deal the GPU is whats important. The difference in the OC is "peace of mind". They make the adjustments that can be safely made.
