Vista processor power mang.?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Trying to turn off all the power management stuff to help with my OC.
I can't seem to find where the processor power mangament is.

Also should I disable the PCIe power management?

Yup disable everything why not, more power to the people!
No really now, to disable the processor power management feature go into your BIOS and look for a C1E or Speedstep value and set it to disabled.

Thanks! I was worried there was a processor setting somewhere in vista + the settings in bios.

lol you can't disable Vista's Power Management inside the bios. You have to do it inside the Power Options in your Control Panel. Make sure everything is set to 100 so that it doesn't underclock anything to save power. I had one hell of a time trying to figure out why my 3.2Ghz processor was running at 900mhz in CPU-Z....Vista Power management underclocked it down. Set it to 100 and now it runs at the right clock all the time.

The easiest way is to set the power management on Performance and then edit all the settings and make sure they are all turned to 100 manually afterwards. When set to performance, the CPU and something else will automatically be set to 100 on min and max.

On semantics, I guess you're right. But if you disable any sort of power-saving features in the bios, then there will be no such instances in the OS.

Lol @ you.

There is nothing about cpu speed in Vista Power Options.

The only way its going to 'help' the overclock is altering the power management in the bios, hence my screenshot.
