2What should I set max CPU state to?
If you set the minimum processor speed to 100 percent, the processor will always run at maximum speed. In the same way, if you set the minimum base multiplier to 0%, it will run at the minimum base multiplier, which is usually half of the CPU core speed. The CPU can adjust core speed in the blink of an eye, so keeping processor speed to 100% is unnecessary and will use more electricity. And if you like results over power saving, you should hold the minimum processor speed to 5-10 percent.
