Default What does "C6 Mode" setting in ASrock E-350 UEFI do?

Does it enable further power-saving modes? Does it affect Sleep mode?

It seems to default to "disabled". Is anyone else enabling this on their Zacate motherboards?

C6 is a deep low-power state. IIRC it cuts power to cores not being used when the CPU is not idle, but doing light work.

I don't imagine there's anything wrong with enabling it, but on a platform like Zacate it might only save a couple watts.
