Correct me if im wrong but doesnt turbo mode add 1 to the multiplier....

so in reality 19x190 with turbo is the same as 20x190 without turbo?

For 4.0Ghz with a 190 QPI you need to have a 20x multiplier with turbo enabled. A 200 QPI is more ram specific and would give 1600Mhz on a 2/8 ratio @4.0Ghz
No, running turbo on a 19x multi will result in a 21x multi. Turbo takes it to 21.
