But this is NOT the case with sandy bridge. Leave them on dude. It's less stress on it aswell, so it'll live longer seems you won't be pumping full speed and vcore through it all the time.
Yeah, okay, sounds logical
Think I'll just turn them on again.
How about Spread Spectrum, Thermal Throttling, that Virtual thingy? And stuff like that?
But how come my Windows 7 x64 still shows my processor being 3.30 Ghz.?
I mean, if you go to Properties on "Computer", and you check which CPU, you have it says:
"Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30 GHz 3.30 GHz"
Now shouldn't that last "3.30 GHz" actually be a "4.8 GHz"? :S
