The way I see it you are after getting the water flow to all the places in the tank it needs to go. If you can do this with 10x turnover then why add more?

I don't think you can have 'too much flow'. You can reach a point where you have enough and don't need any more flow but I don't think you can have too much for the plants. I'd rather err on the side of too much rather than not enough. The biggest issue with flow might really be with some fish as we keep a lot of fish from slow moving waters.
