    CpuIdle Pro

    anyone ever hear of it i just downloaded it, free for 30 days and pretty cool it recognizes your chipset. idles your cpu when your not using it seems pretty cool prolly better when your overclocking.
    If you won't stand behind the troops then you can trying standing in front of them.

    Cpuidle is a pos progg and if you decide to oc, it will interfere with your ocing speed and give you instability. Waste of time IMHO.

    Oh...waitaminute, you're a Fat Dog, by all means use it

    ur folding so its a complete waste. folding keeps ur cpu at 100% and that would be wanting to lower it.

    It's better to use hardware cooling than software cooling. All CpuIdle does is turning off some instruction sets on the CPU when it's idle. It may look good when the CPU is idle but when it's running at full load you get the same temp. Besides, a big CPU temp difference is not really good for the CPU.

    Hardware = Yes
    Software = No no.

    Unless you run your computer at idle most of the time.
