LCC, vdroop... is it really necessary?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, im planning on buying a 8350 cpu, and after reading a bit about it, i ofter see LCC and vdroop ect. First of all i don't plan on overclocking the chip, but being an electrician, im a bit worried about this vdrop thing. I mean, changing the voltage continuously on the chip to save a bit of power consumption seem a good idea, but i can't help but wonder if it's good for the chip in the long run. I quickly skimmed over this article, and as you can see, the voltage seem to spike a lot between drops.

Since i don't have to pay the electricity bill where i live, i don't really care about this feature either, and was wondering if it's possible to run the cpu at a constant 4.0-4.2ghz like it was intended to. Can you disable this feature? And if so, would you recomend it?

Short answer is yes, you can disable the turbocore feature. Now for the rest of the question, what motherboard are we talking about?
