nothing wrong with cool and quiet, it can very easily be turned off

Does it really matter?

You can just turn it off.



God I love CMOS reloaded, Saves me so much money on my electric bill!


Lower the voltage, turn down the multi and save me some $$$

cool n' quiet is a good thing unless you are overclocking. it only downclocks while your pc does not need the power, if you require more power it almost instantaneously adjusts (think the poll rate is something like 60hz i.e. it can change between normal speed and cool n' quiet speed 60 times per second as needed)
