AMD CPU throttle ?


1 post in this topic

I have an Acer Aspire 5100. AMD Turion @ 1.7 GHz. Using Zeph's AMD 10.5.2.


Under all operating systems, pegging the CPU at 1.7 GHz for an extended period of time makes the system overheat and turn off (80 degrees C). Linux (and I assume Windows) can properly throttle the CPU so that the critical temp is never reached. I haven't found a solution to allow Leopard to pull this trick off.


Truthfully, I don't even care about throttling - if I can get Leopard to lock the CPU at 800 MHz that would be fine too. I have Linux set like this to preserve battery life, so setting Leopard the same way would be great.


Anyone know what I'm talking about and have an answer?
