Generally buying the unlocked(K) SKU is better, since it allows for overclocking(which is always fun and helpful)

If the need ever arises for it, it's good to have. The turbo boost is also better than non-K

As @Crunchy Dragon has already said, the stock turbo speeds are better. But your motherboard doesn't support CPU overclocking, so the unlocked multiplier is a bit pointless.

buying the K just allows overclocking. and it has higher clock speeds.
