    Everything just feels 'quicker' to say the least. It's not exaggeration. I picked up 3-5fps on my system from it with BF3.

    As far as shortening the life.... core parking is used for an energy saver standpoint afaik. Instead of having to reach a certain utilization %, to unpark a core, you can get the full performance right away as opposed to meeting a requirement min %.

    Overall, just speeds things up a bit. I noticed the difference right away.

    Well, in terms of improvement, it all depends on how much the application you are using, uses your CPU. Your not gonna get an FPS boost in everything lol. In my case, planetside 2 got an increase of 10fps in certain situations with 500+ enemies, tanks, and aircrafts. Overall in ALL situations no big difference in fps figure, but smoother and more stable fps rates overall. Thats probably because there is no parking and unparking going on, the whole feature is disabled.

    Basically the point in unlocking them is because windows automatically turns it on and off when it feels it is appropriate, and laptops in particular are more likely to keep cores parked in alot of situations where you would not want them to be parked. Also read the link i posted in my last post, explains the microchanges of parking and unparking that goes on in the background..

    Ah about lifetime, i dunno to be honest, it is designed to run with all cores and is tested thoroughly before being installed so i think that its all good as long as your temps are fine. Also you dont need your cores unparked all day 365 days a year. You can change it within 2 minutes to suit your needs...

    I followed this and got a lower CPU and overall Score on 3D Mark Vantage

    After Unparking: http://www.3dmark.com/3dmv/4450992
    Maybe it's because I scanned my system for the specs on the after and not before... idk

    All 4 (8) cores work as they should, you only need the right app for this. I get to encode a CD in flac in a matter of seconds with 8 threads working.

    Some +/- in performance is normal with every run of a benchmark. They are not that solid in terms of final numbers.

    Yea, c_man is correct. Ideally your laptop should unpark and park automatically depending on the app that requires it.

    However parking and unparking occurs in microseconds and can cause very small drop in fps barely noticeable. Butt, the reason i do it, is because many games/apps do not cause your CPU to unpark when they should as it increases performance in certain games and apps. So i keep mine unparked all the time keeps things snappy.

    thanks mrwolf. My G75 is not really used for gaming its used for 3d CAD/CAM. By doing this our software load A LOT faster and our Simulations ran about 25% faster. So I turned around and did it to my father's G74 and it works there too. He saw the same increase in software loading but not so much on the Simulations. That just could be the differences in the processors but who knows anyway thanks.

    Ah your welcome good to see that it benefited all you guys. Its alot more important to do this for 3d CAD/CAM or 3d Video rendering and stuff.. Huge improvements.. With games there wont be a massive increase but some game that are CPU reliant will benefit..

    Just goes to show Windows 7 Power-saving CPU management is a FAIL lol
