How does the Cool n Quiet work. Does it affect the system speed at all. What about gaming. Thanks for the help. More about : phenom 955 cool quiet Helloworld_98 August 3, 2009 3:32:38 PM Cool n Quiet works by adjusting clock speed to CPU load, so 800MHz when idle, and 3.2GHz at high load. m 0 l jdelsignore911 August 3, 2009 3:33:49 PM But when gaming will it run at 3.2 or should I just disable the whole thing?? m 0 l Related resources Cool'n'Quiet almost instant crashes for ASUS M5A99X EVO + Phenom II X4 B55 - Forum X4 955 BE/Cool'n'Quiet/Prime95 Question - Forum AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE on ASUS M2N68-AM SE2 ? - Forum AMD Phenom II X4 955 on ASUS M2N68-AM SE2 ? - Forum Cool n quiet driver for phenom ii x4 965 on linux - Forum Can't find your answer ?

But when Cool'n'Quiet kicks in it should reduce it down to 800MHz and the voltage to 0.96V, and when put under load (i.e. gaming) it'll go back up to normal speed.
