Windows 7 power options/selecting a power plan

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So, asking because I don't know for sure:
I chose the "high performance"-plan and went to the advanced settings. Is there anything that I should change? I looked at the processor power management and the values are min. 100%, system cooling policy is at active and max. 100%. Are these settings ok, or should I change something? Or does these values even affect anything to my rig?

Thank you for your help!

If you want speedstep active, allow it to take down the CPU to a minimum of 10%. If you don't, then it will constantly stay at max voltage/clock speed, use up more power and burn the chip faster.

Aside from that, everything should be fine.

OK. What is that system cooling policy? active, passive?

EDIT:
Google is my friend. So active is that it will ramp up the cpu fan before it throttles the cpu. So active is what should be chosen, right?
