When the CPU is put in a board and everything is at stock, the CPU runs at Intel's advertised turbo speeds. If you choose to go in and modify stock settings to enable power cap it will run at Intel's advertised power draw, but you no longer get Intel's advertised speeds and you are no longer running how everything comes stock.
