What is your guy's sampling rate on setcpu? It comes standard as 46875.. This is what it means if you don't know what it means... Sampling Rate is defined in microseconds. The lower this value, the more responsive the CPU will be in scaling its speed up or down. However, a lower sampling rate will also negatively impact overall performance. SetCPU I lowered mine to 41000... Just wanted to see if it made any difference.. I think it might have.. but I'm not quite sure yet. Also, should set on boot be checked? What is yours?!
