I know it's the wrong section! I7-4790K Turbo Boost!

Hi guys,

Just a quick question before i buy everything is it possible to disable the turbo boost on a Asus z97-A motherboard.

I don't intend to overclock and don't want the cpu running at 4.4ghz on turbo boost either.

Should I get the I7-4790 instead.

Thanks,

if you don't want to overclock you should get the non K i7-4790 and an H97 motherboard, but you should be able to disable turbo. But it wouldn't make much sense a Z motherboard and a K chip if overclocking isn't in your plans

I want to get the 4790K since it has base 4.0ghz clock speed. whereas the 4790 has 3.6.
