If you are going to overclock, Turbo Core is what you should disable, since it involves speed bins above the regular speed and voltage bins above too.  It's much easier to simply leave it off and work on a stable OC from there that doesn't suddenly require 1.6V at some point (due to an increase needed for partial core turbo boost at higher clock speeds stable).

xd,

at 4 GHz and lower those settings work but i had issues with 4.2 or higher. had to disable C1E and C&Q, in addition to HT and turbo, to pass prime. I'll try it again enabling/disabling one item at a time.

i see no point of running higher than 4 Ghz as a hex anyway, since i only fly, race, and do photoshop.
