Tech report has to do a article on CPU performance with core parking disabled in windows 7 on i7 cpus mainly but my i7 2600k and i3 2120s cpus with hyperthreading have a much better load balancing with core parking disabled. I have read in other articles win rar performance increased dramatically with all i7 CPUs by up to 40%. Windows 7 systems are the affected.
I am posting the link on how to disable core parking since i think it made my cpus run a bit better...sorta like a tune up on your car when it starts to need one. It includes examples of problems fixed but i feel strongly that this needs to be investigated by the PRO's AKA THE TECH REPORT
with a thorough article of the differences of disabling core parking or not.

<<<<<<<<<<LINK on how to disable core parking.Along with some testimonials of fixes
if you google disabling core parking you will find more reports of increased CPU performance. Like microstutter fix, system pauses or hangs. FPS drop fixes ETC.
As i said i did it to my 3 hyperthreaded cpu's and the load balancing is much better, but I performed no benchmarks myself comparing the differences since i am experienced enough to give you all a proper review like the techreport can. It may even help AMD cpus but i no longer own any to test it though.
