    After setting my Balanced option to 4400MHz(4.4GHz) for the last week, it has kept my CPU down clocked, hence a bit cooler(around 30C) when I use it for day to day stuff, and when I want to bench mark, or run a couple of Hyper-V VMs sided by side and have them react snappy; I can switch to High Performance and the system uses my 4.9GHz overclock, which runs at about 38C to high 40's normal use and low 70's heavy use.

    So this downclock setting is pretty useful.

    I bet it will be very handy for laptops(specially gaming ones with unlocked HK SKU's) and other portable devices for battery life(higher clocks = more power draw) and keeping them cool.

    I need to try it benchmarking to really test it> my project for the weekend I guess.

    I just got back from work(had to work 5 hours today), thanks for the info.

    So others might understand, what ever your CPU is capable of,
    and for K(desktop CPU) & HK(laptop CPU), and what ever your BIOS Bclk and/or Multiplier settings are.
