Do you think it will help my BF4 performance?

I've looked at some graphs and heard some success stories that indicate that it could help by 20% maybe. Apparently this stems from the fact that a pc under 75% load will still sometimes park some cores.

Will not affect your OC at all.

So I can unpark the cores with the utility and still leave my settings at balanced power settings and leave the speed step tech on?

I'm completely stable 24 hour prime, unparked my core long time ago but after I already prime 24 hour my CPU. I've left all the Power saving features on via BIOS and use the default power setting in windows. No issues at all.

I have a Z68 Pro3, an i5-2500k and don't get further than "Starting off". I set everything according to the guide, just doublechecked that, LLC is #3 (also tried 2). With Offset +0.005V and turbo +0.004V I get to 39x100, but I can't get to 40 in the next step "Getting closer". I have increased the turbo voltage everytime my PC crashes, but it appears to make it crash faster...

I had this CPU running rockstable at 43x100 before I updated the BIOS (countless weekends of BF3 stable), but now I can't even reach 4GHz.

How can you not get to 4ghz??? I get 4.4ghz rock solid for months just using the auto tune setup in the bios and never once had a crash from the overclock. When I bump it up to the 4.8ghz setting it gets unstable.

That's exactly what I'm asking myself. I just tried to run LinX for longer than 5 minutes, my PC crashed (no bluescreen, just power off) after 15 minutes.
Here is what: HWmonitor and CPU-Z looked like 5 minutes in: http://i.imgur.com/XUNWS1z.jpg
The temperature increased to around 79° with a short maximum of 81°.

This is all with just the multiplier increased and Vcore offset +0.005V and additional turbo voltage at +0.004V. If I increase the multiplier with those settings, the Vcore goes up a ridiculous amount. 1,34V @ 3,9GHz...
What is wrong with this board?!

/edit: here are my BIOS settings: http://imgur.com/lDYhIkv,XKK2eZs,WK6fp6y,64ngoWV,GWetwzI#4 (go to the left, wrong order...)

if you disable C6 state then your cores dont park, you dont need extra software to get it done. If you followed Kenny's guide, that should be disabled anyway.

I did follow kenny's guide in disabling the C6 state. But its funny because when I ran the unparking utility, it said 3 cores were parked. So I used the unparking feature in the utility.

I'm going to be upgrading to win 8.1 in the near future. Do you think I'll need to change my OC settings at all? I'm not changing any of my hardware except putting 8.1 on an SSHD.

I liquid cool them all and I only go 3C above ambient if the ambient does not go above 26C the difference increases greatly. If ambient goes to 28 am looking at over a 10C+ difference. Although the DARK is new I am sure with time 5Ghz is within reach.

1. your quote is from over 1 1/2 years ago.
2. nobody runs 4.5 at .88...nobody
3. 3C over ambient if <26C and 10C over ambient if >28C =/= reality
4. why in ASRock forum when no haz ASRock?
