HI guys help, especially for those who owned AMD Phenom II X6 ..

If i overclock it for example to 4ghz.. should i disable Turbo Core Technology which is the new technology for this CPU..

If I leave it "On".. that means if I am using only 3 cores or less..These three cores would be at a higher speed than 4ghz ..lets say 4.5ghz, "while" the others stay which not using stays at 4ghz.. is that CORRECT??

So back to the question..should I leave Tourbo Core technology on to even push "3" cores higher than my already overclocked 4ghz or disable it so all cores stay at 4ghz which is already overclocked..

You will see no gain in gaming, games can't use the extra cores. The only real reason to get a Phenom II X6 is for improved multitasking and better performance in properly threaded software.
