Message 71076 - Posted: 30 Aug 2021, 15:30:21 UTC

So i was wondering how would i go about, in software of downclocking my cpu speeds, so i could run a little bit cooler.

I know you can ask it to shut off for a percentage of the time and to only use a certain amount of cores. But this has me worried with spikes of voltage running through my cpu, i set it for 50% usage before relaxing and it literally spiked voltage up and down per second. Which to me could cause more damage than I would be comfortable with.

Would it be a case of doing it through BIOS, which would then mean the whole computer would run slow, meaning i would then have to reboot into bios to get it running faster again.

Any help would be much appreciated .

The program called MSI Afterburner has a slider for core clock speed but I believe it's for the gpu only, you might look for something like that for the cpu.

I have MSI Afterburner, I may use that for when I am at work and want to leave this running. But the CPU going full pelt is my issue. May just change it through Bios, i do have Ryzen master but i still need to look at this.

Much appreciated.
