After reading an Article on Anandtech about how many modern mobos have a feature called "Multicore Enhancement", which works on non-K processors and is tantamount to shutting off turbo boost and having all cores of your CPU run at maximum turbo speed ( in my 1240 v2's case, all would run at 3.8 Ghz instead of 3.4 ), I thought "hey, why not" and as I migrated my CPU and RAM to a new motherboard that claims to support it, I chose a water cooler ( for a few other reasons too, to become familiar with them, to make my build look a bit sexier - transparent case, and to support the excess heat from enabling all 8 threads at 3.8 Ghz ).
But, now that it's all set up and working, I cannot find a feature called that anywhere in the BIOS. There are a ton of OC settings, none of which are obviously it. There are options to turn off Speed Step and Turbo, and it almost seems like turning off those two would be the same if the proc then ran at the higher speed, but I'd guess those'd make it run at the normal speed and never upscale.
Has anyone used multicore enhancement before? It is just not compatible w/ Xeons even though it's compatible w/ non-K i5 and i7s? Or is it just really hard to find?
