Disabling cores? - Page 2

The only reason why I am saying this is because core 2 and 3 are between the other cores. Disabling these two cores should leave a cooler spot.

As soon as my new PSU gets here, I'm getting back in to overclocking, since my current PSU starts to burn at anything above 3.7ghz and 1.45v.

how do you disable the cores? is it a function that is only on certain boards or are all of them able to do it?

I'm pretty sure most boards can disable cores in the bios.

ok. i was just wondering because im using the same board thats in your sig on another rig. which happens to have a 1100T on it. so i wanted to try this out and see how much of a temp difference it would make.

EDIT:

just went messing around in the bios on my other board and saw nothing about how to disable cores. what is the nvidia core calibration for?

It should be in your bios somewhere. I think mine was under advanced bios settings

Oh, I haven't actually checked it yet, but I was just asking my question, assuming that I could disable cores.

the only thing i saw that had anything to do with cores was nvidia core calibration. but afaik, that unlocks cores. not disables them,

but if you figure it out, let me know.
