I don't know about that one but...

The overall purpose of power management is to manage the system's inactivates - that is power down things when not in use or low activity. Once those items are needed, power management is disengaged so to speak.

And actually I should have clarified the purpose of C1E/EIST which is actually related to Intel's CPU's. In short, it's an Intel CPU power saving mode, not a system power saving mode -

Quote:
What you might not know is the purpose of some of the more obscure CPU-related BIOS settings. Both C1E and EIST relate to power-saving techniques employed by Intel CPUs. EIST, or Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology, is an offshoot of the notebook SpeedStep feature that lowers the CPU speed when it’s not under heavy use. C1E is an enhanced halt state that cuts the clock multiplier in the CPU to a preset value when the OS tells the chip that it has no work for it. Each has pros and cons. EIST is known for greater granularity, ramping up and down depending on load, but it does require driver support in the OS to manage it. Critics say EIST can actually reduce performance since it’s designed to operate the CPU at lower speeds whenever it’s not running at 100 percent capacity. The C1E state is issued by the OS when it’s idle, so C1E doesn’t require quite as much management. But some overclockers prefer to disable C1E since it can interfere with overclocks. We’ve seen older boards feature settings for both, but in our experience, newer chipsets from Intel contain settings only for C1E. Flipping off the features will force the CPU to always run at its maximum clock speed. Phenoms have similar features with Cool’n’Quiet (akin to EIST) and now C1E support. While you’re not supposed to, we’ve run with both settings on without issues, but your mileage may vary

You can see a perfect example of this by disabling/enabling C1E/EIST in the BIOS and than using CPU-Z check the activity of the CPU. You'll notice the CPU running at full bore with it disabled, and Idle when enabled. This of course is provided you have the proper power management set up. particularly Processor Power Management Plan....

so finally got my swiftech H220 and my 2 nocuta NF-F12s and i got up to a 4.6 on my 8350! i tried to get to 4.7 but i think i may have almost hit the limit to the voltage of the board. i kept going up little by little and couldnt get stable on 4.7. i've read somewhere that most boards hit the point where you have to add a lot more voltage to get to the next level of jiggahertz, and i think thats where i'm at. i could try 1.38 because thats what the default bios settings go to for the 8350 (not sure why), but i'm just being content with a cool 4.6 for now. besides, this board doesnt do well with cpu socket temp heat dissipation.

I remember the good old days when the first 1gig Athlons came out and some clever person showed how to bridge the L2? and unlock the psu . I did this to mine and got it to 1.3gig with a lot of heat, cpu coolers weren't up to much those days.

hahaha! yea the first thing i remember about computers was a tv commercial for an intel pentium 3. LoL i'm glad technology has advanced since then

In order to pass 4.7 to 4.8 Ghz you need to pump at least 1.47 to 1.488 volts there is no other way around it i am selling my FX build on Ebay right now the overclock might still be in effect to who ever buys it

oh wow!! i'm not sure if my board will handle that. it gets close to socket temp throttling already, its just not great at dissipating that heat.

OK, I will not even be attempting an entry into the SF Overclocking leaderboards with the new CPU, it's not the kind of CPU for insane speeds. But I figured I would show my daily OC in here.
It runs at 4.6GHz at 1.264V and then idles down to 1.2GHz at around 0.9V.
The screenshot was just after a run of IBT @ 4.6GHz yesterday, temps are very good, I am happy

I see the idle temps, what were the (full) load temps?
