there were no drivers needed. you just go to power settings in the control panel and set it to "minimal power management" and it works
my comp is currently idling at 23c. i'm not quite sure how this works. i know it throttles the voltage and cpu speeds to keep power consumption and heat output down but the lowest my computer has gone is from 2.2 to 1.7 which it's currently at and i'm running 22/23c. before i turned that on i was idling at 42c. that's a HUGE drop in cpu temps...

I find it odd that the "65W" 4200+ I have at work runs frigid (barely spinning up the stock all-aluminium CPU fan a few times a day) but the "65W" E6750 at home never spins the fan down, even with a120mm fan on a big six-heatpipe cooler.  I suspect Cool 'n Quiet >>>> EIST for power savings.  Even the old S939 4600+, a 125w or so rated part, stays remarkably cool when it spends most of the day clocked down to 5x200.


another data point for you- I have an E6850 and with an all copper HSF from compusa, it never spins up its fan until I start playing video games.  So the c2d is also pretty cool.  I think E6850 is a 89W part isnt it?

before the e6850, I had a x2 4200+ that idled in the low 30s also.  My wife has a pentium M 2.0 and at idle, it drops to 600MHz.  I can see it in CPU-Z
