    I accept that there may be unusual cases where an explicit setting is necessary. My issue is with it being done as a matter of routine when no problems are evident.

    I meant to add that these are called boot options but their effects remain throughout the session, not just during the boot process. This is often misunderstood.

    It seems to affect AMD platform mostly. It may have something to do with processor drivers as each core has it's own driver in control panel's Device manager. It could be happening because windows do not recognize them right during installation so I usually check those settings at first inspection after clean install. Can't hurt anyway.As soon as I have time I'll check what will happen if I change those settings.
