ONDEMAND cpu frequencies

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I own a hp laptop and i'm quite frustrated from the battery life (2 hours max at med usage @ lowest brightness) so i was wondering if there is a software to change cpu frequencies lets say my i5 runs at 2.3 ghz so when i'm just using browser or internet, the cpu goes down to 1.6 ghz or so and when i'm gaming, it gets back to 2.3 ghz...

I'm not sure if i5 2410m has a built in system like this but i would like to know a software which can do that.

Thanks in advance !

that feature is already built into the PC, called throttling

edit; found in bios, enabled at default

my apologies shad0wboss if i sounded like a jerk Snorkle.gif sorry man !!



my current G73 has bios C1E /& throttling option (an Intel option), so did all my last EVGA & Asus mobos- stays at 1.6 usually- until i game then overclocks turbo

found this for sandy bridge, matched processor at least - mentioned throttling of sorts

download throttlestop from notebookreviews and use that program to adjust and reduce your cpu voltage to absolute lowest stable voltage on prime95

so that is called underclocking? because i'll be doing this in a laptop and not pc so i don't want to have fireworks going inside the system, would underclock cause any damage to the system? because i don't want to mess with the voltages..

@ParadigmBags

haha you didn't sound like anything up there lol, np...

and thanks a lot for that link, i think it'll help but my question remains the same...would undervolting cause any problem/damage to my cpu? because my warrantly is only for 8 months or so and i don't want to have a fault after the warranty finishes so just want to know if it's safe..
