Hello, i've a question about c6 c7 states i builded two desktops pc with dh87mc and a haswell processor also i've a haswell certified psu so i wonder to know if it is reliable for maxium throughput to enable c6/c7 states on bios. also i wish to know if factory default bios settings in this motherboard have the c6/c7 disabled. the only way that i can see for enable it is under custom option in the intel dynamic power technology but i wish to know if the high performance profile has it enabled by default.
thank you very much
Hello Juanla, the C6 and C7 power states reduced idle power consumption with a minimum of 0.05A on 12V2. This is a power saving feature that will help reduce temperatures and lower power consumption.
The DH87MC motherboard, with the original BIOS version 0043 comes with these power states disabled by default.
