APIC... Yay or Nay?
I have recently ran the wonderful software, Sandra Lite. It is a analizing and benchmark tool that helps the user see areas of improvement on their system.
The big one that came up for me is: APIC. The software told me that I do not have APIC enabled on my bios and that I could easily do so by engaging it in BIOS. I have read and heard of a lot of APIC horror stories and I'm afraid that I would have to reinstall everything if windows would fail to boot after enabling APIC.
Is it really worth it? My system is running pretty good now for a brand new build, so should I try to jepordize it with APIC? Or maybe I'm completely confused and enabling APIC is easy and harmless.
Go ahead you computer saavs!
