It'll simply allow it to run at full speed on all threads simultaneously. Reply to JOOK-D m 0 l Henrik Jensen DK April 6, 2014 6:22:00 AM I just read in the manual to the Asus Z87-A motherboard that Multicore Enhancement is enabled as default. They wouldn't do that if it meant they put the cpu at risk, I'll bet. So I guess it's safe to use Reply to Henrik Jensen DK m 0 l Ask the community Post an answer Related resources SolvedDo most motherboards offer MCE (Multi-Core Enhancement)? Turbo boost in all cores?
