And this only happens with AMD not Intel...but I guess its a good thing
Allows for more control and customizability IMO
Not that you can't do the same with Intel but I suppose it's nice safe way of making sure you don't accidentally fry your CPU.
Besides intel are marketing whores that go after grandparents and alike...if they made you had to set option in the BIOS no one would understand.
That's why AMD is less known and generally you have to know a small amount about computers and how the work if you really want to get the most out of your AMD chip.
IMO That's better that they do that, then you learn about the 'magic box' that you're using down on the floor
