    5930K vs 5960X

    I have recently replaced my 5930K with a 5960X.

    Voltages aside, overclock settings are the same between each system - 44x CPU and 42x cache.

    Q1: I have C-STATES disabled. I am using Windows power settings to have the CPU clock down to ~12x when idle (minimum processor @ 20% or something). At 40x cache, this works without issue. At 42x cache, the PC will hang just after dropping the multiplier. I've tried LLC Auto -> 9 and increasing DRAM voltage. It did not appear to make a difference. Can anyone suggest which things in BIOS should I focus on to try and fix this issue?

    *NOTE. If I use high performance power plan, system does not hang.

    Q2: I am using AIDA64 cache and memory benchmark tool to measure performance. I am getting the expected result for READ and COPY, however, WRITE remained the same - it did not increase inline with READ / COPY. Is this expected / normal?
