    Is there any reason not to disable it? Is it going to hurt anything? Thanks

    i just disabled the eist and it worked. Should I do the c1e also? Does this hurt anything?

    personally i leave both options enabled as i don't mind my cpu throttling while idle, but it's up to you

    so when you leave yours enabled does it show your overclock in windows? If it shows it on post but not in windows does it mean its overclocked or not?

    no, my oc doesn't show in the windows properties properly

    yes it is overclocked, open cpu-z and put the system under load and you will see the cpu frequency increase

    I'd leave eist enabled unless your trying to get a stable very high OC to help lower heat and power consumption. I keep c1e disabled do to slight ringing from noisy chokes and it doesn't save much power compared to eist.
