39W difference with Dual Core! - Quad will even make it worse...

But I seen tests with up to 90W difference (also Dual Core!) because of higher Core voltages.

Depending on your usage this can make some bucks...
--> [value in W] * [number of hours the PC runs a day (idle/windows)] * 365 / 1000


go4life don't you pay your bills by yourself?

If your PC is left running 24/7/365 leave it on. If it isn't and sees downtime regularly, leave it off. Personally, it annoys the crap out of me. Yea yea I know, great idea for energy saving, cost cutting etc etc. Still annoys me.

You know that the latest speedfan is accurate and reads properly now and has for some time.

Also alll you have to do if your using a older version is configure it with extra 15c if you want.

Open up CPU-Z again than start any kind of little CPU benchmark (like SuperPI).
You will see that the multi is instantly going from 6 to 9 and the Clock Speed from 1600 to 2400.

C1E only reduces the CPU Speed in idle Times.
The switch is so fast between full and reduced performance mode that you wont feel any performance loss!
I re-enabled Speedstep/C1E in my rig after I OCd it and it keeps my idle temps about 2-3C lower too so there is another small benefit.

But I do have a question....does anyone know if having it enabled will bring down my 3dMark06 score? I would think not since 3DMark06 is running the whole time, but does it go idle between the graphic tests and need to ramp up again as soon as the next one starts (thus possibly lowering my score a little)? Please knowledgify me if you know! Thanks!

Well I did read some stuff on this.
I only have links in german - sorry.

All I read about it come to the point that there is a difference between C1E and EIST (SpeedStep).

C1E reduces the multiplicator and vCore.
It is Software based - so some Mainboards don't work it correct and only do the multi change.
It only knows the modes idle and usage.
C1E should not effect the performance of your system in any way.

EIST does use the same techniques on hardware layer.
The main difference is that EIST knows more than 2 states.
EIST can reduce the voltage and performance of your CPU even when it is running between 1 and 99 percentage.
- that is also a problem for extreme Overclocks, here you need to disable it-


So C1E should be no problem while EIST affects your 3DMark Score.
BUT even EIST only does a minor difference - It is just not worth disabling it normally!
And think about it: with a 3000 Dual Core you won't hit ne 3d Mark records nor? [I have a very close CPU to yours and know it ;o)]

Thanks for the info!!! +rep

Ha, yes we do have very close rigs/CPUs! If I might ask, what 3DMark scores are you getting? I got 11,036 at 3.0 but want to get the Freezer Pro like you or Hyper TX2 or OCZ Vendetta soon and OC to 3.4+/-. Also need to upgrade my ram too so I can link again.
