  3. Yeah, the BIOS is the way to go..
  4. is there any other?
  5. A Prescott with a 60mm cooling fan will disable both Cool and Quiet! :D
  6. I don't have another way for you, but you might check the forums at RightMark. They have a CPURightMark program that provides Cool&Quiet functionality (improved of course) and I imagine if there is another way to disable C&Q they would know it.

    I declare this joke of the day!
  8. If you run Windows, go into Power Options under the Control Panel and set the power scheme to "Home/Office Desk". I also own an X2 4400, and I can say with certainty that this will turn off Cool'n'Quiet.
  9. setting power options to "Always On" should work

    Right on the left side of the chip, if you look closely, there's a small toggle switch: CnQ On:Off. You may need an eye loop to see it, but that's the surefire best method.
  11. The best way is to diable it through BIOS.

    The best way to disable cool'n'quiet is to go into your BIOS an disable it :P
  17. I went into BIOS nad could not find cool"n"quiet. Is it under something else or called something else?? idk
  18. you can use crystal cpu id.
    under multiplier management you can change the multiplier to anything you wish thus disabling cool n quiet.
    Need to check the appropriate voltages though! ;)
  19. Or, you could find the yellow wire on the fan, "that would be the Controler wire" "AKA RPM meter" and snip it, and then the fan will always be on full blast... (but this would be the last choice...) because , if you do that, and you want the option back, either you would have to solder the wire back on, or replace the fan...

    hope this helps...
  20. I know this is an older thread, but in windows you can override cnq by going to screen saver settings, change power settings (select 'high performance'), then click change advanced power settings, go down to processor power management and set minimum processor state to 100%. your processor will then run max frequency all the time.
