    X79 SpeedStep

    I'm wondered, I have readed that in 10.9.2 most X79 CPU's now have SpeedStep working OOB, and some other people say that's wrong. I have noticed my CPU (3930K) actually change frequencies, but not sure if that means I have SS enabled features. Is there any new information about it?
