i read somewhere that using prime 95 was bad for devils canyon cpus and to use aida? are there any settings i can turn off? to stop things automatically adjusting for power saving etc
ya in the bios theres something called epu power saving. turn that off and turn off speed step if you want your cpu to run at a constant speed (which is pointles since its nice to have it idle at a lower frequency to have lower temps)
prime95 shouldnt really damage your cpu since what you read was most likely a complaint from years ago which they would have fixed by now.
