I built a computer consisting of an ASUS mainboard A8N-E and an AMD Athlon 64 Venice 3000+ (939 socket).
But I can't get the Cool n Quiet function running. The processor runs all the time at 1800 MHz. I checked it with various programs (like CPU-Z, etc.).
I have Win XP (32 bit version), SP2 and all latest patches installed.
What I did:
- enabled Cool n Quiet in BIOS
- updated the BIOS to the latest (final) version 1004
- installed the Cool n Quiet driver first from CD, because it did not work then from http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/...1_9706,00.html
- set the Power Schemes to Minimal Power Management
=> The processor runs all the time at 1800 MHz, even if it's basically idle.
What the heck is wrong?
Anybody any idea?
