For 24/7 I turn on EIST & C-State, and CPU Core is set to adaptive.
For benchmarking, I turn off EIST & C-State, and CPU Core is set to override.
The first saves power, and the system only uses what it needs at the moment.
Skylake and Kaby Lake(and soon to be Cannon Lake) have built in thermal monitoring that will throttle the CPU if needed.
The mobo was installed in January 2017.
I've yet to see it go over 28°C.
Matter of fact,
it's always at 28°C.
Maybe that will change,
when summer arrives and the ambient temperatures are higher.
