Just want to ask if its ok to disable other cpu core for a dual, tri, quad or hexacore cpu? The purpose will be is to save energy when I leave my PC on when Im downloading stuff from the net. Has anyone tried it? any negative effects on the cpu? Any useful link regarding this will be very much appreciated.
The cpu im currently using is the Phenom II X6 1090t.
thanks in advance.
1. Cool & quite will lower the voltage and clockspeed if CPU demand is not much thereby saving energy.
2. Set your power setting to "Turn-off Monitor" after 5 minutes so the PC shuts off the display. save on monitor power too...
If you got an old rig with dual core, might be good to put it to use for your downloading...
