Post How to "disable" SpeedStep in Software

"Disabling" SpeedStep in Windows XP

Coming soon...

"Disabling" SpeedStep in Windows Vista/Seven*
*As of Seven RC1, the steps provided below are the same, however the windows do look slightly different.

Go to your control panel and open "Power Options"

Next, regardless of which powerplan your on(though I recommend "High performance" for a desktop PC) hit "Change plan settings"

Hit "Change advanced power settings"

This will open the advanced options(go figure ), scroll down to the "Processor power management"

Open and change "Minimum processor state" and "Maximum processor state" both to 100%

Hit Apply and Okay to everything and your done!
