    guys ...another question spring to my mind ,if you dont mind me asking

    what does C3/C6/C7 state in the bios do?

    and why it is disabled by default ? does it make the PC unstable ?or at least while overclocking

    Intel Microcode is what tells the BIOS which CPU's are compatible and which are not.

    There was an issue in a few BIOS with D0 Temp control/detection, that is now corrected

    CPU microcode is some kind of low-level CPU firmware. It can be upgraded from BIOS or using OS kernel module to fix hardware errors.

    If CPU is not supported by BIOS, the reason is not microcode, or not only microcode. May be just CPU initialization routine is old, and when using it, CPU cannot be initialized properly, so You'll see just a black screen or have strange problems with stability.

    try to search for it in Intel Core i7 datasheet. It can be downloaded from Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Server and Embedded Processor Technology - Intel for free

    I linked above the explanation for all the C States C1/2/3/4/5/6/7

    Ya I am not sure either if CPU support is "Fully" all inside the microcode, but I do know part of it is at least because they always have to update the microcode to add new CPU Support
