core parking and you

Post by Stephen » November 15th, 2013, 6:03 pm

alot of talk about this latly and most people jump on band wagon because one person might have gottten a small increase.

heres what you need to know.

first off what anyone tells you dont edit registry for this, this changes the power profile which you dont want to do.

if you feel like your having cpu problems start by disabling turbo boost and test.

turbo boost can be disabled in the bios and can be a good and bad, the way turbo boost works is it clocks up your bclk of certin cores and your dram frequency now this isnt always going to happen sometimes it clocks different poritions of the cpu or other components which is were problems happen, second off if you disable parking and have turbo boost it cannot park cores to bump up other cores which is what it does to keep the tdp thus having a hot and potential laggy cpu

if you want faster clock speeds then over clock do not rely on turbo boost as its ment for single threaded applications mostly.


now for taking care of the parked cores, (should only do this during gaming or workload tasks)
THIS IS ASSUMING YOU KEEP YOUR COMPUTER CLEAN AND DONT HAVE SHITTY COOLING PARTS

this is the easist and safest way, go to your control panel and power profile.

there will be a down arrow to revel high performance tah da thats it, now your able to keep your c6 state intact but run your cpu fully when you want.

and when your not game just reselect balanaced profile.

you will most likely see about a 5-10c degree increase with full cpu usage
this is also including more power obviously

no promise for performance increase as some machines handle cores better then others.

have fun

Uh, is it bad if I've always had High Performance on since I got this machine?

I've had my PC set to "high performance" since I've had it.

I know that auto overclocks typically put too much voltage on the CPU, but first off, I don't feel like spending a whole day using prime95 to find my safe limit, and second, my CPU is so cheap I can just buy a new one or an upgrade if it fails.
My code works 60% of the time, every time.

Cpu is very unlikly to die, if it gets to hot its designed to shut down,

But heat can slow it down and or blue screen and such
