Hardware Notes

BIOS/UEFI Settings

Intel Settings

Intel Speedstep or EIST: OS conrolled clock speeds. Older

Intel SpeedShift: Cpu controlled clock speeds. Newer

I disable SpeedStep/EIST and use SpeedShift to let CPU control itself.


I prefer undervolting lately since clock speeds are not everthing and IPC (instructions per clock) plays a big role in performance. Lower -0.010v and test. Go lower if system is stable.

Don't forget to test nvme ssds for instability too.

Disable hyper-threading if you don't really need it. Cpu runs cooler. 13700k performs at least 10c cooler with NH-D15.


Use Intel TurboBoost but disable motherboard manufacturer overclock settings. They push too much voltage and generate too much heat as a result.
Asus: Disable Multicore enhancement
MSI: Disable Encanced turbo
