Most likely to differentiate more between tiers. If this is truly the case, it would probably be best to return the board and get something that has all the proper options.
BTW highc1157, you do have cool & quiet disabled too right?
Okay my bad, I just looked up your motherboards manual and you have to go into Advanced CPU Core Features and it will give you the option to enable or disable the option.
& CPU core Control (Note 1)
Allows you to determine whether to manually enable/disable CPU cores. Automatic mode allows the BIOS to
enable all CPU cores (number of cores available depends on the CPU being used). (Default: Automatic mode)
& Core C6 State (Note 1)
Allows you to determine whether to let the CPU enter C6 mode in system halt state. When enabled, the
CPU core frequency will be reduced during system halt state to decrease power consumption. The C6
state is a more enhanced power-saving state than C1. (Default: Enabled)
& HPC Mode (Note 1)
Allows you to determine whether to enable High Performance Computing (HPC) mode for the CPU. Enabled
prevents the CPU frequency from being lowered during system halt state. (Default: Disabled)
& APM (AMD Application Power Management) (Note 1)
Enabled Dynamically monitors the power consumption of the CPU cores and automatically
optimizes the CPU to its best performance level. (Default)
Disabled Disables this function.
& Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P.) (Note 2)
Allows the BIOS to read the SPD data on XMP memory module(s) to enhance memory performance when
Disabled Disables this function. (Default)
Profile1 Uses Profile 1 settings.
Profile2 (Note 2) Uses Profile 2 settings.
& System Memory Multiplier
Allows you to set the system memory multiplier. Auto sets memory multiplier according to memory SPD
data. (Default: Auto)
& Memory Frequency (MHz)
This value is automatically adjusted according to the BCLK Clock Control and System Memory Multiplier
settings.Edited by Lshuman - 8/14/13 at 5:28pm
