Windows 7: Cpu downclocking

03 Aug 2011   #11

Ubuntu 12.10

TBH, I haven't found a way to undervolt my Core i7 720QM... There is CPUGenie I guess, but when I tried it, it just gives me a BSOD.

Since you can't open it yourself, again, tell MSI to check it...

Windows 7 ultimate x64

Well as I know, these msi laptops (FX6xx) can handle these temperatures for a very long periods of time. But, since you are saying that I should contact them, I am going to write a letter for them write now. Thanks for the advise. Is it great or is it not, I am going to find out soon.
Also, maybe you know any tips on how to save battery life time? I only get 3hours, which sometimes is not enought.

Undervolting is the best solution, but you won't be able to use it. Lower temperatures will give you better battery life, as the fan is not going to be used as much. You could underclock, but IMO, I wouldn't. If you want great battery life, you should go with an ultraportable... Chrome OS anyone?
