    This is the BIOS screen from the X58 SLI LE w/ the Load and Save profile options, but I don't see the Turbo Mode Function option you're referring to, other than the one in the CPU Feature menu...

    It must be an older bios version, my original ones didnt have that option either, but when i updated to bios 44 it appeared, here take a look its a shot of my screen in bios, the option is disabled and highlighted in red

    If I'm not mistaken the "Turbo Performance" option locks your memory multiplier at 2:8 no matter what settings you make to the system. Not sure why that'd be important to lock like this, but I'm pretty sure that's what I read here : evga forum topic on this bios update

    Turbo Performance is for the 6-core processors. Some sort of green mode, s totally uninteresting for OCers and it should be disabled.
