Turbo Boost 2.0 - does the Mboard matter? Tags: CPUs Turbo Boost Intel Motherboards Product DR01D January 20, 2013 8:42:22 PM The CPU I listed below has Turbo Boost 2.0 but does it need a special motherboard to make this feature active? Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I73770K (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) I'm looking at 2 motherboards. This one from MSI MSI Z77 MPOWER LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) ... and this one from Asus ASUS P9X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) The Asus lists "Turbo Boost Technology 2.0" but the MSI doesn't mention it at all. The Asus is $60 more but I wondered if maybe it was worth it because it would use more features that the processor has. Thanks a ton in advance for any input!
