Cool n Quiet stopped working



Cool n Quiet was working fine on my 3000+ Venice and MSI RS480 mobo. I reinstalled Windows and installed the same drivers that I had been using before, but Cool n Quiet isn’t working anymore. I use CPU-Z to check the frequency. Initially it used to drop to about 994 Mhz at 0% load but now it stays at 1790 Mhz.


Hmm did you also install the AMD CPU drivers? As those are needed to make C’nQ work correctly.


Look in your installer CD … I’m sure I saw it in mine and needed to install it to work.


Yes, I installed the AMD drivers.


Figured it out. I forgot to change the power settings. Working fine now.
