Over the weekend, I was looking for a way to turn on Intel SpeedStep on my Core 2 Duo-based Desktop PC. Here’s how:

- Set your Desktop’s power management setting to â€œMinimal Power Management.â€
You can read more at this “SpeedStep How To” from Intel. My rig immediately dropped from 2.66 Ghz to 2.00 GHz.
