Hey guys, i built a new gaming PC this week.
CPU : Intel i3-3240
Motherboard : MSI Z77A-G41

I've been playing games like planetside 2 alread and all.
Now today i was wondering if i should overclock my CPU, so i went to the MSI clickbios utility, and apparently it had an intel turbo boost option, i didn't know i3 CPU's don't support it so i enabled it and restarted.
Than i looked up on google about i3's and i found out they don't even have turbo boost.
Now i disabled it again and restarted again.

Did it do any damage?

No, no damage done. The worst that would happen is it simply wouldn't boot or would ignore it gives its fixed multiplier. No need to worry about it.
