Let me ask if I understand this correctly; if I turn off the "C" states, my Ryzen 1700 would run at its full 3.0 mhz all the time rather than throttling down when it is not really doing anything? This in turn would generate more heat, and therefore shorten the life of my processor or would it?
Disabling c-states on their own will just increase your electricity bill. To shorten the life of your processor you would have to pump more than about 1.4 volts into it.

Once more, thank you. I learned something new today.

hey catweazel, do you have microcode for your intel running?

Code: Select all

dmesg | grep -i microcode
mint blacklists amd and intel microcodes or is that ubuntu that does it? don't know why developers blacklist the microcode but then make it a dependency and can't be uninstalled.
