Gary, have you tried Core Temp RC6? It may read your CPU better than RC5. It did mine.

Well I just tried it Steve and it's BS to download, one has to install an installer program first then try to opt out of a load of bundled crap. I finally got it but it won't run and it still reads the CPU wrong.
I sent a nastygram to Arthur Liberman, the developer.

EDIT: On the ALCPU forums the developer, Arthur, stated on Dec 10th that RC7 would be released "this week or next", still not out though.

I don't know then RC5 reads mine like yours, but RC6 works fine and reads it right.

Did you have the InstallIQ thing too?

EDIT: I found another source, it asks to install only a tool bar which is unchecked by default. IT still doesn't run though.

I attempted to install Core Temp but cancelled. Questions...

- What it this InstallIQ?

- And does it really install Yahoo Toolbar even in "custom" install?

It is a way for developers or the file host to monetize their wares by trying to bundle crapware with the legit file. It is an unneeded POS.
I unchecked Yahoo Toolbar and it did not install.

There is some debate in what C1E does and how it affects overall system performance. In one sense it is a power saving method, on the other hand, because it's a power saving method, it can influence overall system performance. How much of a performance hit is debatable.

I personally leave it enabled as I don't want or need my CPU running at 100 percent all the time. On the other hand, if you're benching all the time, perhaps disabling it will get you those extra points.

It comes down to what you want, but in the end having a system run 100 percent all the time may not be good for the system or your wallet.

Here's some info

- What is C1E? - TechSpot Forums

- C1E Feature and SSD performance @ 4k tests - Crucial Community

Here's an article on it and SSD drives though the article is nearly 5 years old, and I'm of the opinion this no longer applies, but that's just gut feelings - Outlook, Conclusion And Remaining Questions & Answers - Does Power-Saving Technology Kill SSD Performance? (conclusion page)

My two cents.

Thanks. I just didn't want to install and find, even though I un-checked the box it ignored and installed Yahoo Toolbar anyway.

Peace

on my AMD rig, disableing C1E did give me a little better frame rates. but the thing i noticed most was that stuttering stopped in games. there was a lot of micro stutter i was getiing and part of the cause was C1E. i also ran a benchmark, (cinebench) with C1E on and off and with it off i get a better score.
