    Supposed to be fixed in either Win 8 by an update or built in to 8.1.

    I know before it was limited apps like WinRAR etc and you could get far higher WinRAR bench scores with the cores unparked by a hack.

    It isn't a place for flaming against each other.

    Nor me but is it not supposed to be all ok now in 8.1 due to MS sorting the known issue?

    I have a fx 8120 and it has 8 cores,
    on windows 8 or 8.1 I don't see any parked cores by just changing power settings to maximum performance,
    on windows 7 had to install KB2645594 update and after restarting KB2646060-v3 and that worked on this fx 8120 amd cpu and w7 sp1 x64.
