How to Enable Cool'n'Quiet Technology
Athlon 64 processors have a tecnology called Cool'n'Quiet which allows noise, heat and consumption to be reduced. This technology works by monitoring the computer usage (this is done 30 times per second), reducing the CPU clock if your PC is not needing high performance. Running at a lower clock, less heat is generated and less power is consumed from the electrical grid. This tecnology also reduces the CPU fan speed, lowering the noise generated by your system. When your PC needs performance – if your run a game, for example – the CPU clock speed and the CPU fan speed go back to normal.
