so should i enable it?

All it does is lower your multiplier/voltage when you're not using very demanding applications, so the PC runs cooler. If you can live with that, then turn it on.

Me, I like my PC on full blast all the time
.

In some cases it causes some issues overclocking, so thats why people turn it off.

The probe on the heatsink wont be as accurate... You need to place it touching the heatspreader or cpu die, to get good reading...

Untill then go by speedfan.

Your cpu is calling for a better heatsink.
