Is it normal for my cpu turbo boost to be on all the time while gaming and is it normal to hit temps up to 85c?

3811mhz
 
Per Intel, that CPU has base speed of 2.8 GHz and turbo of 4 GHz, so boosting to 3.8 GHz seem quite reasonable. 85 C seems quite high. What is the temperature at idle? If that is quite high and your case does not seem oddly warm, you might just have a miscalibrated thermal diode.

At idle it’s around 30-40c
 


That's about right. 85 C is hotter than I would like. Your system is not crashing (I assume), so it can handle it, but I would still look at fan speeds and trying to get a bit more hot air out of your case.
