Tbh i do not recall the Asus Multicore Enhancement setting (I'm looking at the manual now).
I was also using HWINFO64, but mainly looked at cpu temps & vcore readings towards the bottom of the window, so the clockspeed at the top were obscured...
So far other Realbench tests improved, & XTU and Maxmemm2 preview too. Of course just short runs for now, until I've found the settings I want.
If you set an XMP profile, the bios will ask you if you want to also enable the multi core enhancement, you can also set it manually from within the overclocking section. What it does (in case someone reading this isn't aware) is applies the maximum core speed to all of your cores when turbo is used (as well as some extra voltage to support this). So instead of the maximum 4.2GHz of a 6700K only being applied when one core is in use, and lower clock speeds being applied when multiple cores are used, it allows for all cores to reach 4.2GHz. This is handy because of the way Windows will spread a single thread across multiple cores, meaning that unless a thread is specifically told to only use a single core, the maximum 4.2GHz will rarely be reached.
If you open the Summary window in HWInfo, there is a handy graph that makes the clockspeed behaviour easier to see. Unfortunately it can't be run separately from the main window.
You can also re-arrange the order of the sensors in the sensors window.Edited by Deders - 1/19/16 at 10:00pm
