Re: Which CPUs allow their voltages to be changed?

you don't need to underclock/undervolt an i3 to make it silent. My original idea was to go crazy and take it down to 0.65 volts and halve its frequency, which calculated from a stock voltage of presumably 1.20 volts would reduce watt consumption to barely 15% of normal values. I figured with this I...

I was already investigating which PSU and CPU cooler to get when the concept of locked/unlocked CPU came to my attention. Try...
