For AMD processor, there is a hack with setpci tool to do
I used it on my desktop because I found the temp of my processor
was always = 60-62°C with 0% CPU used...
With my NForce2 chipset, the command is :
setpci -v -H1 -s 0:0.0 6F=$(printf %x $((0x$(setpci -H1 -s 0:0.0 6F) | 0x10)))
I put it in /etc/rc.d/rc.local so it is always started at boot
with this command, now my processor temp is near 40°C when
it has 0% used

could you tell me WHY I'm doing each bit?
As Linux is an Open System, that means it is up to the user to set it
