Semi-Unlocked Intel

Hey, not an Intel guy myself, but thought this was interesting. New Intel CPUs are semi-unlocked for decreased heat and power when Idle. Kind of like A64's CoolNQuiet. Some bios' are taking advantage of it and giving you the option to lower it manually.

Does this mean you can underclock these CPU's at your leisure?

From the posts on the other thread, the example shown for a newer CPU (I think Prescotts, again, I'm not an Intel buf) allows a BIOS setting to lower the Multi from 18x to 14x only. I don't know if this means all of them will lower by 4x or what. Kind of interesting. I wonder if this will move OCing Intels to use tighter mem timings instead of pure bandwidth. Although Intels repeatedly show that, if you can give it the bandwidth, it'll use it. Unlike AMD CPUs where it can only use so much before it's overhead bandwidth, hence the tighter timings being preferred.
