i5 2500k and power saving options

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I posted yesterday but apparently my title was very vague, i apologize.

When i have the power saving options like c3/c6, c1e, and the voltage set to offset i get lower scores in 3dmark11 by 200 pts and lower gflops as well, 2 gflops less. So my question is, is there normally a performance decrease with these power saving features turned on ? System specs below

Strange. Try increasing the CPU voltage just a bit.

I upped the voltage to 1.32 by setting the offset to .060 and still the same scores ...... Im confused as to why it would be doing this

Try using the other voltage setting, not offset, the one where you just type in the number (its what I use) and just punch in 1.35v and see how that goes.

What you are seeing is probably the turbo kicking in or the cpu coming out of power states. That would account for the difference it wouldn't normally be noticeable during regular gaming, only during benchmarking.

Also, do you have turbo mode enabled? If you're bouncing off the power limits, then your difference could be a result of throttling. I have turbo on, but all multipliers are set to 48X. This lets me raise the power limit from default of 90W (I think) to something unreachable like 300W.

But I get the same benchmarks, with either power saving features on or off.

I have turbo mode and set to 45x for all cores as well....all the power saving features are on ... idk i guess ill just leave the power saving features off due to the decrease in performance.

The same here. I didnt' find the way out to solve it but i prefer the pow sav options on all the same cause the PC seems to be more stable with them in overclock. I used to get BSODS in iddle and increasing vcore didn't affect this
