I used to run 4.2Ghz on 6 cores.

For the last few months i've been running 3.5Ghz on 6 cores @ stock vcore + 4.2Ghz turbocore.

I can't tell any difference in anything I do.

The primary tasks on this computer are video editing, in which case 6 cores is actually useful for me especially at full speed, albeit turbo boost really is not depends on what you do I guess. A lot of the time turbo boost can be finicky though (i.e. with voltage additions, I once enabled turbo boost and accidentally sent 1.675V through my VRMs and CPU luckily didn't kill anything doing that )
