Do any of you have hyperthreading enabled? And do you use speedstep?
For me, after disabling HT and enabling SS my idle temps went down 7-8 degrees.
I haven't really noticed any difference in performance, actually my fps went up a little in games without HT.
I thought I was using SS all the time but then I realized I had to enable C1E in my bios to get it to work.
Any opinions on this?
