Re: Underclocking App
To say it in a more simple way: goto bios and find where you can set the
FSB (front-side bus) speed. See if you can manually set the FSB. If you
can, reduce it from the deault and get a slower system, thus making it
produce less heat -> less cooling needed -> less noise. OTOH, you'd also
either have to be able to manually set the cooler to run slower OR the
system should do it automatically OR you could mod the cooler to do so.
It could also be possible to set the FSB from Windows, there are
programs like setfsb that can be used to set the fsb on the fly.
You could also swap your hot Prescott CPU to a lot cooler 2,4GHz 400MHz
FSB Northwood... accidentally I happen to have an extra one O:-)
