    Do unparked CPU cores become parked when you swap out your motherboard?

    Hopefully the question makes sense. I can't exactly word it that well.

    The reason I'm asking is that I had an old motherboard and I had unparked my CPU cores on it (I heard that I could get better performance from BF4 and reduce stuttering/lag in-game). I had to replace it due to a wobbly SATA port. I got my new motherboard and installed it and when I started playing BF4, I would go from 70fps down to 19-25 fps for about 3-4 seconds and would get this horrible stuttering. Recently I reinstalled Win 7 thinking that would fix it but it didn't. Just now I checked my CPU cores and 4 out of the 8 cores were in a parked state again.

    TL;DR So, say you had an older motherboard and on it you have unparked all your CPU cores. You decide to buy and install a new motherboard. Will then the unparked cores become parked again because of the new mobo?

    Sorry for the awkward question
    Oh hai der.

    That setting is set in the windows installation or the bios so yes.

    Nah, unparking CPU cores so it takes them out of "power saving mode". Are those settings saved in the BIOS or in the OS?
