Controlling Atom processor with speedswitchXP?

Postby Dr Who » 24 Sep 2008, 09:44

The Atom is mean to be able to speedswitch, so does anyone know if one can use speedswitchXP (or any other software) to manually control it? My Aspire One fan noise is a problem in certain environments and I was wondering whether throttling the power might help.

Doesn't work by the way. Well, speedswitch suggests it is changing the speed of the processor (should have tried superpi to confirm I suppose) but makes naff all difference to the fan noise.

There's quite a lot of discussion regarding controlling the fan on the AA0 - if you haven't already been over there you might find what you are looking for here http://www.aspireoneuser.com/forum/view ... =44&t=1338

Cheers 'speed.

Sadly (?) I am running the XP version not the linux model. Suggests if someone manages to kill the fan under Windows then it would be possible to run, if only for a short time perhaps.
