How to save Energy with a Core i7 930?
So I used to run my cpu at 4.2Ghz 24/7. Now my bills are so freaking high and all I run is my desktop. Anyway I don't know why it's not clocking all the way down to below x12 multi. I have it bios under volted to 0.850V since it's the minimum allowed and have the cpu multiplier at x12. In windows it never goes below the minimum. My question is how do I get my core i7 which is in x12 multi and clock down during it's ultra low voltage power states going below 0.850V? and possibly below x12 multi? I think I'm saving a ton of power from before and the pc still feels really fast even all my games run fine at 1.6Ghz (Including Battlefield3). By the way I have all the bios C states enabled as well as step speed and auto demotion etc.
THANKS FOR YOU HELP, and I hope you can.
