Yes/no. All boards offer power-saving disabling and regular multi-clocking. It is best, however, to clock using Turbo itself, like the CPU does at stock. Some boards, when XMP is enabled, run all cores at the max turbo multi. Some do not. Most gamer-oriented and OC boards do though, no matter the brand. I recommend overclocking using Turbo. Don't forget, the game has changed considerably, and Intel will warranty overclocking, too. For a small cost($25 or so), Intel will replace your chip once, even if you give it 5000V. No questions asked. http://click.intel.com/tuningplan/ I hate to push marketing on you guys, but to me, this is worth it. Clock that chip up, pay the small cost, and don't worry about anything.
