Question Concerning AHCI State

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I wasn't quite sure where to put this, it could go under several categories, but I guess here will be fine.

My last couple of computers have had the same thing- a very annoying high pitch buzzing coming from the satellite speakers on my desktop rig. I never could find a solution to this until recently I read that it was caused when the processor was on on idle stand-by, something to do with the frequency produced then. So I went into the BIOS and disabled C1E and core 6 state functions, and the noise is gone. (The silence is wonderful. biggrin.gif)

My question is this, I have already noticed that it idles a few degrees warmer than before, but nothing excessive. Is there any other detrimental effect to having these settings disabled?

Shouldn't be a problem. You're consuming more power with c1e and c6 state disabled, hence the increase in thermal output. They are usually disabled along with Cn'Q to help with OC'ing. Other than the power and heat addition, nothing terrible should come of it.

AHCI has nothing to do with the things you have disabled, though. AHCI is a SATA operation option.
