Default Re: Please help with game pausing/lag problem

Cool & Quiet turns down the CPU speed and voltage when it is not needed. For example, right now when speed is not important the CPU Frequency is at 1000MHz and the Voltage is at 1.075V, but if I start something that requires more speed, like a game, the CPU Frequency goes back up to 2400MHz and the Voltage to 1.475V. This helps to reduce heat, instead of my CPU temperature at idle being 40-46C it is 28-33C. Of course during a game it goes back up to 46-50C.

Unfortunately it seems that this causes problems with UT, maybe the CPU Frequency is changing while the game is running causing it to speed up and slow down or something.
