Disabling Intel Speedstep in Bios

I have the DG965wh intel board and I was wondering what Intel Speedstep Tech. is called in the bios because I dont see "speedstep". On my AMD 64 laptop i can disable it by changing the power setting to home/office which locks the multiplier at the highest level, but for some reason on my Core 2 duo it still allows the multi to flex betweem 6 and 7, and quit honestly I just want power I dont care about saving power. Any Ideas?

    Do you even notice a lag in performance? Why not just let it be if it's not getting in the way?

    It might be referred to as EIST.
  2. I agree with RJ sbout leaving it alone, and yes it is called EIST
