Solved C1E/Cool N Quiet/Spread Spectrum? Question/help? Tags: CPUs Overclocking Fan Controller Last response: November 9, 2010 2:35 AM in Overclocking Share jasonp12 November 1, 2010 2:57:37 AM I was advised when overclocking to disable all 3 of these as well as smart fan control. i kinda understand what they all do from the sounds though c1e and CnQ are almost the same? they are both voltage and multiplier throttling tools for when you are idle spread spectrum throttles your BUS speeds? neways i understand why disabling them can help you more easily determine a stable overclock.... however my question is AFTER i obtain a stable Overclock should i leave these things disabled or can i safely re-enable all or some of them without causing stability issues/crash/performance issues? thanks More about : c1e cool quiet spread spectrum question jasonp12 November 1, 2010 3:33:16 PM bump saint19 a c 158 à CPUs a c 280 K Overclocking November 1, 2010 5:06:51 PM Hi.

In simple term, C1E is enhanced halt state or you can sya lower power state. It cuts the chip power consumption and heat production. In OC, C1E can stay on as long as it gets passed stress test but I usually disable it. Best solution jsc a c 172 à CPUs a c 197 K Overclocking November 8, 2010 9:32:03 PM Share I turn off Spread Spectrum and leave it off. I turn off C1E and EIST (SpeedStep) while I am working up stable OC settings. Then I turn them back on. It doesn't bother me a bit for the CPU to loaf during light loads. jasonp12 November 8, 2010 10:36:58 PM do you have any stability issues with that JSC? jasonp12 November 9, 2010 2:35:54 AM Best answer selected by jasonp12.
