is there a quick way to "freeze" CPU speed setting?

5 posts in this topic

I got a laptop which came with Win7 and it is setup to automatically vary the CPU speed depending on load. The only problem with this is that some programs (mostly games and emulators) will always show full CPU usage (on one core) no matter what, causing the CPU speed to max out and the fan to rev up, even though the game only really needs a Pentium II or whatever. So I would like the CPU to stay at minimum speed to conserve battery and reduce noise but without having to go into the power options and change the config because that is too many steps.

On my desktop PC I have CPU speed scaling disabled under Windows and I use CrystalCPUID instead, but I don't think it fully supports the laptop CPU.

I would try Throttle Stop and set max multiplier to lower value.
