Enhanced Intel Speed Step to enable or disable is the question?
I do overclock just a little bit and was wanting to get some suggestions on if I should disable or enable the Enhanced Intel Speed Step technology. If you know something useful then please post it here. Thank you!

Disable in order to OC.

Disable in order to OC.

And if one decides not to overclock?

It will just automatically slow down the CPU speed when there is little usage, for temp/voltage purposes. It ramps up when you start an app, but it won't go as high as you could OC it even in a game... is my understanding.

should have just asked the all knowing one :p


It will drop the multi and reduce the voltage to the core. This in theory is ok but causes stability issues with OC's and worse yet it creates a bit of lag when it disengages and will cause your PC to be sluggish at times. Leave it off!

you want to leave it on unless you are using a K00lance water cooling system, otherwise your psu can explode from overclocking the northbridge...before you know it your money's all gone and your daughter's knocked up :headexplode:

mythy just went off the deep end, he must have had direct contact with the flux capacitor in his rig. Either that or he drank some antifreeze.
