Is it okay to have C State feature disabled for 24/7 use?

post #1 of 14

Just wondering if that's normal.

It gets rid of the whine from my mobo but I read in an OCing guide that you turn off C1E while you do the OC then turn it back on when you have found a stable setup... obviously you can't oc i3 2100 but I was just reading the guide for fun lol

It is safe for you to have C1E disabled. In fact mine is always disabled.

About your motherboard whine though...that's another issue. I'd actually RMA that board...it shouldn't be making noises like that in the first place...

Shouldn't damage the CPU/Mobo if it's a stable overclock and it has good temps.

Motherboard shouldn't make any noises either with C-state enabled.

C State is just an idle state.

its an i3 2100 so it can't be overclocked but if i leave C state on, I get horrible coil whine.. but if I disable it the noise goes away.

please is this normal to do? cuz I need a final verdict whether to RMA or not cuz my dad's already pissed off lol.

do you get coil whine with C state on, but not with C state off?

No, it's not normal. RMA the board before anything else bad happens.

Is it your dad's motherboard? You don't need him to do anything. Unless MSI warranty policy requires registration...and it's registered under his name.
