I don't know how to do that, there's no such setting in the BIOS. Could you suggest anything?@sciff ,

This has already been discussed - Intel changed 256-bit registers throttling during development. You can try to lower uncore clock speed and that you'll get higher base clock, as it's hit by TDP limits pretty hard.
Why not? In case of Corona renderer for 3ds Max for example, if we extrapolate from how Corona Benchmark works, no microcode is way better. Again, I'm not talking about 24/7 in turbo mode, only occasional use of the CPU's full power.I personally won't run any production enviroment without any microcode, and probably with anything earlier then the microcode from the times of the first QS released - Intel doesn't share what they've actually patched, only some really outstanding bits, like TSX bug.
I haven't had any stability issues yet when there's no microcode installed. Only when I used 0x27 microcode, then there was one issue, with the video driver dropping out.
