    From what I've seen the "Top Performance" does some minor overclocking. On my board (which is obviously a few generations behind yours) the only real difference I notice with it enabled is a slight increase in the CPU clock speed. Anything that changes the system from default settings has the potential to decrease stability but in this case I really don't think that anything is changed enough to matter. Give it a try and find out for yourself. You can always reset your bios to default again.

    Ive just enabled it and for some reason my system has become more stable, there has been no increase in performance but programmes are no longer crashing or freezing.. So if its not doing my system any harm then im going to leave it on
