    Gary is correct. It is the enhanced halt state that allows the board to reduce power to the CPU when not in heavy usage.

    Gary and Steve are right. With turbo OCing having CIE allows it to clock down when not under a load.

    Oh ok, I didn't realize that this was a turbo OC, meaning as you idle the CPU load drops and you save power, but when doing intensive tasking it powers up*turbo* and c1e controls this. It's different approach from the way I overclocked because I disabled turbo so I got confused. Thank you for clarifying this for me. Learn something new each day :)

    Oh yeah, an OC is what the CPU ramps up to, it doesn't run it all the time and should drop to 1600 under light loads or idling.

    Hey guys, I think my score is a little low..
    Is it ok? I have the GPU OCed to 798Mhz clock instead of 700Mhz.

    Shouldn't C1E be disabled, I see it's enabled?
    I think C1E is what allows the Speedstep and Turboi to work.
    Speedstep works with C1E disabled. That is how my system is configured. Turbo may depend on it - turbo requires that non-boosted cores be able to go to some lower power state, don't know if it has to be C1E though.

    Apparently Turbo works too. Seem I read C1E had to be enabled for overclocking, maybe to a higher level than 4600 though. Anyway I disabled C1E and I still get Turbo boost. We have the same board, my i5 is the same but has no embedded GPU.

    C1E is a power saving feature for the CPU, it drop the frequency and the voltage when your PC is idle. I seem to remember advice to disable while finding your clock, but re-enabling after you have it set? A Guy
