I'm building a new pc for a friend of my brother's and the system consists of:

gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P motherboard with p55 chipset
intel i7-860 cpu
8gb OCZ DDR3 1333/PC3-10666 (OCZ3P1333LV4GK)


Apparently there's a lot of performance gains to be had by manipulating the TRD/Performance level:

But i'm having difficulty a) finding out what the trd is set at in this system, and b) finding a way to adjust it.

I don't see an explicit TRD value in the bios, and cpu tweaker 1.5 and everest ultimate 5.3 both don't display any such value.
So the question becomes...how do i find out what the trd value is, and how do i change it?
