cool n quiet actually reduces the noise of ur processor and reduces the clock speed when the processor is idle and not in heavy use that way itll preserve its life and preserve power to check if its working download CPU-Z and watch ur clock speed.
not sure what the hwpstate does but iam guessing it has to do something with power management.

_does enabling Cool N' Quite can affect playing games? because everytime i play games on my computer it shutsdown.. when i touch my hard drive its very hot and the CPU blows a hot air.. thats why i ask if enabling this feature can reduce system from overheating..

thanks 4 d quick reply..

If things have started to run hot then you need to investigate the reason first, rather than invoking something that you never had to use in the past.

You need to get temperature measurements and clean case vents, CPU heat-sink, fans etc.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

"does enabling Cool N' Quite can affect playing games? because everytime i play games on my computer it shutsdown"

For starters, it's called Cool'n'Quiet: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cool'n...

Basically what is does is lower the CPU voltage & CPU clock speed when it's at idle or under light load conditions. That lowers the power consumption & CPU temp & allows the CPU fan to be run at a lower speed. Therefore it is COOL & QUIET.

"when i touch my hard drive its very hot"

How are you touching the hard drive? Did you open the case & reach inside? or are you running without the side panel on the case?

"the CPU blows a hot air"

THIS is an example of a CPU. CPUs do NOT blow air, they just sit in a socket.

"everytime i play games on my computer it shutsdown"

Could be your CPU is overheating, OR your video card is overheating, OR your power supply is overloaded. Post your CPU temp. If you don't have a monitoring program, try this:

"2.00 Single Channel DDR2 @ 300mhz"

I asked you this in another thread - why are you running the RAM in single channel mode & why at only 300MHz? You should have 2 sticks of RAM configured to run in dual channel mode & they should be running at 800MHz.

I just went back & checked one of your previous threads. Did you ever get the hard drive problem figured out? Your C drive is WAY too small (only 14GB) & I'm sure it's very slow. And your 2nd hard drive is simply configured stupidly: http://i.imgur.com/PHcQ8.gif

_i did it already.. cleaning everything in my Computer.. but the problem still exist.. i just want to know if enabling it can reduce heat.. and ive noticed that my temps are not equal.. do you have any idea about it???


thanks alot3x...

Overall, with varying usage (including idle periods), it reduces heat and therefore saves energy. However, it does not prevent the computer from getting hot during normal or high usage if that's what you mean.

Could you give us the actual temperatures please - they are more to the point?

EDIT:
I found this afterwards - it is in line with what I said above:

-this is the result when i play "lite" games..
cant pose the screenshot of the temp when i play games like (NBA2K13..etc) bcoz my computer shutdown.. and everything in my CPU is getting hot..i havent inserted my xtra ram yet.. coz i dont know how to configure it..;(

NEED help guys.. thanks..

Too warm.

I assume you are not running with the case sides off or overclocking?

Otherwise it could be the CPU needs re-seating to the heatsink with thermal paste, following the procedure laid down for your processor.

hi Derek..i already cleaned my pc yesterday and replace my heatsink and put thermal paste in it.. then cleaned the fans.. But after what i did.. when i played the game.. it still shutdown.. then i touched again my harddrive and psu.. its very hot.. im thinking to insert my xtra 2gb ram on it.. but i dont know how..and how to configure..


thanks alot..

Look at the temps in the screenshot in response #10. Your CPU is overheating! The minimum temp should be in the 30s, your cores are in the 60s & 70s. My guess is your heatsink/fan is either dust clogged or improperly installed.

All AMD CPUs use the "middle dot" method for thermal paste application. If you didn't use any paste, or applied it differently than shown in the picture below, that's why the CPU temps are so high.

"im thinking to insert my xtra 2gb ram on it.. but i dont know how..and how to configure"

You need to explain your RAM situation more clearly. If you have 2 memory slots but only one stick of RAM installed, you obviously can't run in dual channel mode. Just add the 2nd stick & the system should automatically enable dual channel, if both sticks are the same. And you never explained why your RAM is running at 300MHz when it should be running at 800MHz.

Please also confirm that you are running with the case sides on.

should i only put thermal paste in the middle?? not in its all surface?? i play with cases on.. but with case or not.. the sames thing happens..

and i have no idea why it only runs in 300mhz.. i have 2 memory slot but only one ram is installed.. sorry 4 dat.. dyou' think if i install my xtra 2gb ram with thesame model with my 1st one.. can help??? ill post later another screenshot..

thanks alot sa inyu..

As I said earlier you apply the paste in accordance with the instructions for your particular CPU. It is usually just a bead in the middle, never over the whole surface.

I keep asking if the case sides are on because if they are off it can cause overheating.

yes the case is closed.. but even though i open it.. still shutdown within 10 or 15 mins. my mistake is when putting thermal paste in all its surface.. ill try what youv'e said.. il post a screenshot later.. thankz in advanced...
