Default Dual core

Hi all, Just purchased a Dual core Opteron 175 and an XFX Xtreme 7900GTX 690/1750

Getting aroung 11K stock at the moment in 05

Just wondered is there a dual core driver or update that I should install?

Been digging around and seen it mentioned a few times, cheers

2. Right-click HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager, point to New, and then click Key.
3. Type Throttle for the new key name.
4. Right-click Throttle, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
5. Type PerfEnablePackageIdle for the value name.
6. Right-click PerfEnablePackageIdle, and then click Modify.
7. In the Value data box, type 0. Make sure that Hexadecimal is selected in the Edit DWORD Value dialog box, and then click OK.

Note You can type 1 in the Value data box to enable the new performance state policy behavior.

8. Quit Registry Editor."


You'll also need the to install WinXPdualcorehotfix.exe
