    It is best to turn them off until you find your stable overclock as it just takes it out of the equation.Then turn them back on if you so desire.Some people have had stability problems while enabled although with the newer boards and better power management I don't think it is as much of an issue as it once was.

    Speedstep always been on over here. Sandy bridge, so had no need of disabling it in the first place.

    I have horrific stuttering in Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit with HT on. If I disable HT it becomes as smooth as 30FPS can be.

    Can't say about battlefield, but it's the same engine.

    Thanks for the lol. This is not an american site per se. But I do agree with you that posts should be made in English, and there is probably a rule about it stickied somewhere.

    Once you reach the maximum threshold of your cpu oc you will need to turn speedstep off to maintain that oc with *good stability*.

    Most people never hit this threshold because they dont have custom cooling which is what you will need to push it to the threshold.

    So in your case you probably could have went higher *IF* you had the right cooling.

    well thats not how it goes for the i7 980 cpus dont know about youre i5 but for mine ive been told to turn off speedstep for rock solid stability thats all i can say and i believe them cause its not just one oc forum this advice has come from :)

    if you dont believe me go and run linx or prime95 for 1-2 days and come back once you are bsod free , then youre stable id love to see that with speedstep enabled :)

    That is jsut on old I7's and Core2Quads, Newer Sandy Bridge chips dont need anythign turning off.

    I should note I have HT on all the time, and have no stutter whatsoever. Then again, I have speedstep on, because theres no reason to have it off anyways.

    I had the stuttering in BC2 but have never seen it in BF3. I'm running my CPU overclocked with all energy saving modes enabled without any issues. It's pretty easy to do on SB after all, especially when compared to previous platforms (where it worked also but was a pain to set up and tweak).

    AMD Confirmed!

    Got an OC'd 4100FX – disabling my “third and fourth” core (f@cking AMD) fixed the stuttering, but left me with a ridicules low frame rate. Applying the AMD equivalent of Speed Step (Cool’n Quiet) solved 75% of it! Thanks!

    My stuttering was fixed with R313 drivers from nvidia, and i use adaptive v-sync + frame cap 59.95 and works without any stuttering, HT on. I had big problems with stuttering with R310 drivers.

    I'd had those too, managed to make them disappear after a lot of effort with inspector tool. But these are CPU micro-stuttering:

    1. Try positioning yourself in a place with some heavy fps drops (like Azadi Palace, in the outskirts in front of palace).
    2. Then run: Render.PerfOverlayVisible true.
    3. If done correctly, you can see impact

    This makes some 44 fps look and feel like 15 fps.

    (This is NOT because of bad overclock, as this doesn’t exist in any other game I’ve got installed)

    At maybe 30 fps. No way it's smooth.
