There is this power-saving app called granola. And it requires enabling Intel(R) speedStep on the bios(CPU Configuration).

  1. How would I know if there are issues with enabling this feature with my power supply?
  2. Can this feature destroy the components inside my computer if it has compatibility issues with the power supply?

speedStep can only under-clock your CPU, so in theory it shouldn't damage anything except your performance.

On mobile computers there are reports of problems with bad-quality movie display, which can be fixed by configuring the power options.

You may find some more info on Bay Wolf's Speedstep FAQ or on wikipedia.
