Hi all, I have a hp notebook and all is working well under ML. I have native speedstep and is working correctly. CPU in idle is between 0-2% so all good. However the cpu temp compared to windows one is about 5-7 celsius degree higher. The fan is also more noisy at parity of temperature, how can I fix that?

Speedstep and cpu load are completely different things, although low cpu load should allow your CPU to step down, the % does not tell you if it's working or not. You need to look for cpu frequency change, shown in Ghz, not %

Speedstepping is working, frequencies are changing and in idle i have the minimum freq possible. But compared to windows the temps are higher of about 5 degree and at the same temperature compared to windows the fan runs faster than in windows.

Solved. I patched DSDT for loading applelpc.kext and now is much cooler.
