My System Specs

Default

Well I've been using it since my first CPU that supported this feature which was an AThlon 64 and never had any problems - in windows XP you can turn it on and off from the POWER control panel, MINIMUM POWER MANAGEMENT mode sets C&C on, and ALWAYS ON, sets it off. But be careful - use a tool to monitor your CPU like EVEREST or other, to make sure your vcore, clock & FSB go down - apparently, the neweest AMD driver has problems and C&C doesn't turn on and will work best with windows' driver.

I haven't seen any side effects of leaving it on during intense applications from what I gather your speed will go back up when your CPU is being used.

In fact if you have a stock cooler it is recommended by AMD to leave it on ;)
