  1. Nevermind I have found out it is speedstep lowing my multiplayer to 6x.

  2. Impressive research. Not many people on here know what that is.
  3. Beg to differ. Practically every here except the newbs know what SpeedStep is.

    What is impressive is that russ found out for himself.

    Remember, at one time we were all newbs. But for some of us, that was a long time ago.
