Re: geek question :P

Yes it may harm the Laptop. IT does not mean that it WILL for sure but it may. (next are just example values to explain what I mean): Let's say the fan that is already build-in is specified to take 30mAmpere and the vendor designed the on-board voltage regulator for an output of maximum 50 mAmperes ...

Re: geek question :P

Don't we all think about such things from time to time? Next to modifying your hardware there are some other software tweaks you may also use in addition. Many graphic cards support power saving features as well as the harddrive (both are producing a lot of heat). Depending on the Laptop you surely ...

Re: works very well but...

absolute correct :)

But it is no guarantee that you will be able to get the 600MHz with the next PHC-Version .. but it may be possible.

Re: PHCTool tray icon

No, PHCTool and PHCTool2 are both not longer maintained.
PHCTool2 was meant to replace PHCTool and got some new features like the ability to load Plugins .. but like mentioned I did not have the time to keep PHCTool(2) a high-quality tool next to all the other things.

Re: works very well but...

The 35 or 25W are the Thermal Power Design values. That does mean that the CPU is meant to work with a thermal power output of 25 or 35 Watts (so the hardware vendor knows how much heat he need to handle with). If your first FID is within the given range of values (129 - 254) SLFM is already enabled...

Re: phc_init.d

Oh you are right, the dot is wrong there. Thanks for pointing me at that.
I do not know why restoring does not work I will try to investigate that later. I hope everything else works for you.

Re: PHCTool tray icon

And PHCTool is not longer maintained. I simple do not have the time for it.

I am waiting for others to continue a GUI.

Re: works very well but...

Thats bad if they do not tell you the CPU name. There are some intel tools to identify your CPU (only for Windows) here: http://www.intel.com/support/processors/sb/CS-015477.htm The 800MHz FSB may indicate that it is a T-Series CPU or a LowVoltage / Ultra Low Voltage CPU. A T-Series CPU with 6MB Cac...
