How to reduce / lower temperature of AMD processor?

Your AMD laptop is too hot to handle? It is so hot that you can virtually fry a PAPAD with it or prepare a cup of hot coffee over it?

Your AMD PC are getting freezing now and then due to excessive heat?

Come summer season and you face problem like this – especially in Indian sub-continent.

You can cool down your PC / Laptop a little bit with a little utility though.

AMD had since been released a utility called cool-and-calm utility that works with certain AMD processors and certain OS. If you use Windows, try your luck with this download:

There is another one for Linux too. Search www.amd.com for your version of linux.

Simply unzip and install the above utility. It takes your processor in on-demand mode by reducing its clock speed and hence keep the temperature less by about 5-10 degree Celsius otherwise.
