Enabling cpu parking, how to bring it back

Hi guys! Im not sure where to put this thread, so sorry if this is the wrong place for it.
I disabled my cpu parking last moth I followed this instruction (How To Disable CPU Core Parking For Multi-Core Processors - Ep. 20- YouTube).
No I don't know how to enable it again. Im asking this because Im going to change my cpu soon. Do I really need to enable cpu core parking again, before changing my cpu? Or just leave it like that? Any ways, can someone tell me the right way to enable it again, I want to learn some knowledge from you guys.

OS: win7 64bit
CPU: amd phenom II 955 BE
MoBo: 990fxa-ud3
GPU: hd 6950 2gb (2)

What CPU are you planning to change it to?

If it's the same class (AMD to another AMD), you shouldn't have to change anything...

Keeping core parking off is great to ensure maximum snappiness when running Windows and multitasking intensively on Desktop based systems...

Make sure your MB Bios supports the FX-8120. If not you will have to update to the proper Bios before switching the CPU.

You have to check the MB web site and look for CPU support. Should be a list.
