Mar 31, 2017 · Using Pstate 0 to overclock at 100% cpu speeds or usage will consume the same power and give you the same temperatures as a straight multiplier OC at 100% loads. It will save power and lower temperatures as cpu loads become lower. Also what you see in software for cpu usage/percent can be very misleading. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money! typical thermal power, which is measured under normal load. (for instance, AMD's Average CPU power) maximum thermal power, which is measured under a worst-case load; For example, the Pentium 4 2.8 GHz has 68.4 W typical thermal power and 85 W maximum thermal power. When the CPU is idle, it will draw far less than the typical thermal power.
