Core 2 Duo Undervolt

Postby Iterator » Fri Jul 10, 2009 11:59 pm

I have an LG E300 laptop with an Intel Core 2 Duo T5750 2.0GHz. The laptop does tend to overheat, especially in Linux.

I was wondering if anyone knows of any programs that can undervolt my processor that works in Mint 7.
I have all the tweaked voltages written down from when I was using RMClock on Windows, but I haven't been able to find a program in Mint.
Even just inputting the voltages into a text file would be fine and loading at startup, but I don't think its that easy.

If those values can be changed, you should be able to alter them in your BIOS settings before your OS boots.

The BIOS does not have any option to change voltages.

I have the same laptop and the same problem: laptop tends to heat up. I never noticed it with Vista, so I'm guessing that the power management was better...

Looking for a solutions but haven't found a simple one yet.
