I am new here I searched the forum but did not find an answer so thats why I ask this. If it has been solved before pls forgive me Today I built my new workstation with a TYAN Tiger S2875 mobo and 2 x Opteron 244 CPU's. Everything runs like a charm - till yet
I my bios I saw a setting for "Cool'n'Quiet". After some research I found out that you can dynamical adjust the cpu speed which is a great thing. So my question is, is there a way to configure these feature like for normal Athlon 64 Systems?
No. there is no cool'n'quiet for Opteron CPUs. The reason given by AMD is the registered memory that is said to be unable to cope with frequency changes.
With the Tyan Thunder K8W S2885 (I don't know if it is true for the S2875 as well) you can slow down the system fans down to 30%, 40% or 50% of their full speed. They will turn faster if the temperature of the CPU(s) raise. This is some kind of "cool'n'quiet lite"
