No it lowers temps under load. But it is lowering my ability to OC so I am still trying to find the balance. I don't really need substantial OC or any on my system for what I do. I do have a notebook so I have no interest in OC'ing 24-7. I like to OC CPU and GPU to say play Crysis or others.
I must admit for me this stuff is just academic, to see if I can do it. Then to decide how to use. I am not OC'd 90% of the time, just no reason. But look at my benchmarks sure this fun stuff does have benefits.
Egg-n yea I have seen that I did it first from someone elses post but that was where they got it from. That link and images are good. Only thing I don't get is why the last two? I only changed the last.
Tator as Egg-n's link says.
1. run regedit
2. find hkcu\\software\
3. find dword pstatesdata parameter and increment two last multiplier by 1 (was 6,6,7,8,9,10,11, must 6,6,7,8,9,11,12).
On mine I changed what said "09" to "0A" That was it.
Edit: The change I made was because 09 was my top multiplier. It is not the same CPU as screen shot.
OK so just to clarify I go into regedit. Then I find that file and edit the last entry from 0A to 0B (I have a 10.5 max multiplier)? Thanks for the help and tips. I'm not at all familiar with registry edits. Also, you should post this in the undervolting thread!
