Underclocking

Hello,

As it's starting to get warmer, i want to underclock my cpu on my midget server. The bios is a pheonix one, the only bios option i have relating to the cpu is the following;

CPU Host/SRC/PCI Clock

When i alter this, save and restart its back to default, Is there something im doing wrong?

ta.

PS: this is the motherboard im using.

Have you tried undervolting it?

I know a lot of people undervolt laptop CPUs in order to get them to run cooler. Sounds wierd that it's not keeping the settings

Do you have speedstep/eist disabled?

How do c2ds react to underclocking ?

Only ever purposely underclocked an amd b4 now.

I know some cpus, if u go below the level they operate, the bios will bring it either upto the minimum or revert to stock timing - this iirc involves a reboot after the first fail.

Just tune down the voltage until it's no longer prime stable, that ought to get it chilly

it wont be fine, its running at 50c now, which i think is a tad hot. Dont forget that its in a midget case.

I'l try all the other suggestions tomorrow, but i dont think theres anywhere to change the voltages. But i'll check.
