Okay well I found the option in advanced > CPU config. Than I over clocked my CPU and the option disappears how am I supposed to keep Speed Step disabled? I need it disabled because it's supposed to increase my SC2 performance according to some threads I've read.

SpeedStep is normally found in the Power management option in the BIOS. At least from the mobos I have seen. Also you would need to disable C1E, which is inherent to SpeedStep.

I leave it on because for the most part it will keep the CPU at max performance when its being used by about 20%. SC2 is very CPU intensive so I don't see how SpeedStep will hurt your performance.

From what I read disabling it will fix sudden FPS drops. Not sure if I have a Power management tab. I'll check in a bit.

So I was playing with the BIOS options and changing CPU Ratio Settings back to Auto making Intel(R) SpeedStep(TM) Tech and Intel (R) C-State Tech appear in the Advanced > CPU Config. So I figure it automatically gets disabled when changing CPU Ratio to something other than Auto. Having CPU-Z open and the desktop idle does not change the core speed so I think it's disabled. Can someone clarify how to see if SpeedStep is active.
