I disabled SpeedStep and ThermalThrottling. I don't think I disabled Power Saving Mode.

C3/C6/package c-states tend to give some BSOD's so i would disable those. C1E only clocks the cpu down when idle, and speedstep clocks it accordingly to how much load is on the cpu. i left only C1E enabled myself. you should find them under CPU configuration
Yeah, I guess it isn't hurting anything leaving it as is with SpeedStep disabled. About the ThermalThrottling, if the CPU gets too hot for whatever reason, will having this enabled prevent it from shutting down to protect itself? Should I re-enable that?
