Update:

This has been great on every laptop I've tried (4-5 or so), unfortunately, RMClockUtility doesn't work on my new netbook, its a Gateway LT3114u, equipped with an AMD Athlon 64 @ 1.2ghz.

Ok, I feel like i'm missing something,

Have tried with and without the "64bit" replacement file, but i'm on win 7 rc1, not sure if that applies...

Here are 2 ss's of it alllll open...

Screenie 1 = Nothing much goin on, hot as ever...
Screenshot 1

Screenie 2 = Uh... Sure, 1min... up almost 20celcius... 17min... or longer, not daring... as it goes up 1degree every 5-10 seconds... or more...
Screenshot 2

Aren't you getting high (5%) CPU usage for RMClock.exe in Tak Manager? That's too high considering this is just a small program, really.
post #35 of 146
It normally isn't that high, just temp cause I had all those windows open, and my processor isn't the best in the world (compared to your sig of course).

But it's helped a bit, my cpu is maxing 55 - 56 now, instead of 65-75...

That's weird, I have a Sager NP86600 with P9500 C2D and on Win7. It really reaches that high, that's why I'm planning to get rid of it.

Any workaround?
post #37 of 146
So I have a C2D T8100 2.1ghz processor in my Dell XPS 1330 laptop but when playing games it has caused thermal throttling after a while where I get unplayable frames (the 8400M GS goes above 90C and heats up the CPU quite a bit). Figured there was no way to undervolt my GPU so I decided to perform the famous copper mod: http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=268081
(Still awaiting for the copper sheet to arrive...will perform the actual mod sometime this week). In the meantime, my friend bigal1542 has suggested to use RMClock to undervolt the CPU and linked me to this thread.

I followed the steps thoroughly but after I was done undervolting using RMClock, the multiplier would not go above the lowest (6x). That is to say, the CPU will never go above 1.26ghz even when I load the processors to the max with stress testing programs and games. I played around with RMClock settings and figured that disabling both my Thermal Monitors 1 and 2 solved this problem...now it will go to 2ghz with the undervolting in effect (managed to undervolt the 10x multiplier from 1.1375 to 1.0v). Bigal1542 told me that the Thermal Monitors were needed to ensure proper lowering of my temps...so my question is...what exactly are they and are they necessary for undervolting with RMClock?
post #38 of 146
Hey DaddyWu, glad to see you actually got those voltages down? How did the temps improve?

I did a little more research and found out that they are a safety in case your CPU gets too hot, or if the program knows it will get too hit, it limits the multiplier so it will not get hot.
Bottom paragraph here is some stuff that I read.
I would say to try to re-enable them once you get your voltages minimized just to see if they work then. I did see a few places that they just do not work, no matter what and always keep the minimum multiplier. (Couldn't find it unless I searched for the thermal monitors)

But if anyone has more info, I would be glad to hear it, because I am not anywhere near an expert on RMClock

I played around with the settings a bit more today and found that if I only enable thermal monitoring 2, I still get the same problem as before where the clocks won't go above the 6x multiplier clocks. However, if I enable just thermal monitoring 1, the cpu will dynamically change the multiplier and clock speeds so I will still get 2ghz max. So I left TM1 checked but when I was just playing Counterstrike Source just now, my frames were absolutely horrible (15-30fps) so I unchecked TM1 and now my frames are back to normal (50+fps). Weird... I'll leave both TM1 and 2 unchecked for now since it seems to be working alright. My CPU temps have lowered from 102C (max load with Orthos) to about 75C max load....more than a 25C drop. My GPU temps on the other hand have not lowered as it still goes above 90C and causes the fan to spin crazily loud...I am still awaiting my copper so I can perform the 8400MGS copper mod sometime soon to lower my GPU temps. I will read a little more on the link you provided me Al, thanks.

Awesome to see that it worked! I am guessing you are getting a very small drop on the graphics card unless the heat pad you have is really as bad as that guide says. In that case, it doesn't matter how hot the rest of the laptop gets, the graphics card is going to become an oven. Hopefully That copper mod will help.

Good Luck!

EDIT: You are testing your max graphics card temp in-game, correct?
