I was just in my local computer shop and was asking them about some different things and we got on the subject of the AMD Cool n' Quiet feature turning the CPU fan off completely sometimes. I told the guy I had never seen that before and he gave me a demonstration. Sure enough, the fan turns off completely at idle. He said that is part of AMD Cool n' Quiet which throttles the CPU fan depending on load. Well, my comp has never done that with Cool n' Quiet enabled and it runs at a cool 28*C at idle. The guy at the comp store said it should be enabled in the BIOS but there is no option for it in my BIOS. Any ideas what could be the problem. My specs are: AMD Athlon 64 2800+ Socket 754 Gigabyte K8VM800M mobo Win XP Home 160GB HDD 768MB RAM BIOS version F4 Thanks for any help or ideas.
