Or use Bitsum's handy tweak, instead of going through the registry. Its the easiest tweak yet, just pinpoint which power plan you would like to modify and that's it.


For example make a new power plan - name it CoreParking OFF and then pinpoint out this plan with bitsum's tweaker.

btw i used this procedure, so it really changed only for certain plan, not for all plans. But this was before i found out about this Bistum auto tweak.
post #34 and post #39

And it helps mostly by Audio production, it eliminates any unwanted delay/sound crackle, popups. Can help by games too, but i didnt really notice any difference.

This "un-parking core" tweak worth it for someone like me using a i5 4690k (no HT) with main usage being GAMING ???
