I have to agree, my Athlon 64 3200+ runs at least 5-10c cooler in Windows
(with C'nQ) than in Linux. I think its because the default kernel state
powernow is 'Performance' which keeps the processor at full speed.
Then use ondemand instead.
How do you change which governor it uses though. I have recently compiled
my own kernel with the 'userspace' governor set as default and compiled the
ondemand governor into the kernel, but I'm not sure its made any difference.
Any help would be appreciated.
