 Hi Giorgos,
 Starting out, these variables were not set in /etc/rc.conf. In 
 /etc/defaults/rc.conf they were set as suggested:
 After setting them as shown in my /etc/rc.conf, no change was noticed.
 I also don't think the powernow feature is detected and used, at least 
 with apic disabled.
 Thanks for the suggestion though.
