during idle the cpu goes to like 800mhz or something and vcore will drop, thats why it isnt scailing, during heavy heavy loads it only goes to its max mhz like 2ghz or whatever.

I would suggest you dont install the amd driver and disbale the cool n quite tech i nthe bios, itll only screw up ur overclocking.

Unless you have a use for it, I wouldn't go for it. Maybe if you had all thermally controlled fans in your case or something and wanted it so that your comp can quiet down to nothing when you are just surfing the web and not playing games that is fine.
