    Throttlestop.JPG
    looks like it runs much cooler in Cinebench then what I was doing before, if I remember the only times I have seen it spike were when I was stressing my GPU in Superposition working on my curve, but I was being pretty crazy that day.

    This is how my Throttlestop is setup.

    And to all here, if you have any suggestions please feel free, I only got back into messing around with PC’s and Windows with this machine.

    All my prior PC messing about was from 286 - 486DX and several Celerons back what 30 years or so?

    I’ve been Mac only since then until I got the Area51m.

    So I am learning and re learning as I go.


    I think I already realize one thing, this CPU runs so cool I don't think I need to be undervolting it at all, I am going to remove that and see how it does.

    Not sure how to “ re arrange” the display of HWiNFO64 to show both at the same time ?

    Maybe show HWinfo for temps and TS for clocks?

    So maybe I don't fully understand how throttlestop works yet, it looks like my settings really only affect the TURBO ratio and set the CPU to TURBO at 50 all cores.
    But the speedstep means that it will go up and down as needed. And of course that's what you want, not really sure I understand how to Lock the CPU at 50 all cores all the time ( not that that's a good idea anyway ) but I get what your looking for now your interested in how the KS would perform if all cores were locked at 50 with no speedstepping.

    I'll have to look into this some more and see if that's even something I want to play with.

    Remember Quarterdeck ? QEMM memory manager ? That was to get enough RAM in DOS for WingCommander :)

    Also tell the kids about the time I spent $900 for a 5 MEG HD for my AppleIIGS

    Or how about the $600 Diamond card to get SVGA graphics what was it 1024x768 ?

    Not sure if you know, but 9900KS come with new stepping to fix Intels security vulnerabilities. This come with a drawback... Less performance vs. clock speed. One example here... 5.2GHz behave more as 4.8/4.9GHz in benchmarks.

    And yeah, the KS chips will run cooler if the chips can't go past the 131W power limit who is the limit for Area-51m.
