amd cool n quite questions

Postby paourismp » Tue Jul 01, 2008 7:46 am

Dear users hi!

I own a desktop P/C (amd athlon 64 x2 6400+, asrock alivesata2-glan, evga nvidia e-geforce 8800 gt 512mb, 2x1gb ddr2, 320 hdd sata2...), dual boot (windows xp home sp3 & linux mint Elyssa). My BIOS is set to amd cool n quite and at windows i see that is working when i set the power scheme to "presentation". How i can see if is it working at linux mint too? Also i use a utility (evga precision utility) to adjust the fan of video card. Is it any similar utility for linux mint too?

Sorry for my english
Michael

Not sure about the cool n quiet, I run an amd 64 x2 5000+, and a PNY geforce 8800 gt, I use nvclock to adjust fan speed...its not as nice as RivaTuner for windows but does the job. It has a hardware monitor feature for monitoring your card temps but for me it shows 8° Celcius cooler than a panel applet Im using.

You can add the CPU frequency applet to the panel to see your CPU frequency. And yes, cool'n'quiet works in Linux Mint 5.
If Windows is the answer, you don't understand the question!
