If I disable C1E(No Overclocking), then my system freezes. If I enable C1E, then my system stops freezing. Any suggestions? I am not able to figure out why my system keeps freezing if I have C1E disabled

answer from another person with this issue

The Sandy Bridge processors are designed to work with those features on, even when overclocked. Turning them off can give you hard drive performance issues, especially when using a SATA III drive. Unless you are at the absolute ragged edge of stability and turning them off keeps you stable, then I would keep the settings on at all times.

Pretty much what I was going to say.

Except - if you need to disable things like C1E and SpeedStep to maintain stability, your system was not that stable to start with.
