Anyone using AMD's Cool n' Quiet Drivers?
« on: November 12, 2007, 03:20:48 pm »
I was just wondering if anyone was using AMD's Cool n' Quiet drivers? My hybrid is rather loud and before I put in some fan controllers I was wondering if this might be an easier way to go. If anyone is using this driver let me know if there are any limitations I need to be aware of.

Also, I cannot find any online instructions for installing the AMD drivers. If someone is using it on LMCE, could you give me some instructions to follow as well?

Thanks

Drivers? Fairly sure you don't need any such thing in linux. My AMD is slowing down fine i ubuntu without me doing anything about it.

I think it just needs to be enabeled in the BIOS.  I only have the CPU fan hooked up to the mainboard and that slowed it down to below audible level.

these might help

not sure if the instructions to do it would fit for LMCE though. someone else will probably have a more definitive answer later.

Good deal, I will take a look when I get home from work to make sure I have the cool n quiet enabled in my bios.
Thanks

And before you start recompiling your kernel, you might want to know that PowerNow (etc.) is already set up under LMCE (probably by Kubuntu) by default.
