CpuIdle Features

  • keeps CPU cool
  • enhance system stability
  • convenient user interface (multilingual)
  • display CPU idle and cooling times
  • integration with MotherBoard Monitor:
    • enables CpuIdle to read MBM temperature sensors
    • take action on critical temperatures (increase cooling, shutdown system)
  • generic support for all CPUs and chipsets
  • support for all current CPU types (see list of supported CPUs)
  • special chipset optimization support (see list of supported chipsets)
  • support for multiprocessor systems
  • future upgrades are included

Even if your CPU is not mentioned in this list, or not recognized by CpuIdle, it will still be supported out of the box. CpuIdle will issue the HLT statement to shutdown the CPU regardless if the CPU could be identified or not.
Also chipset optimization will be performed on the chipset detected, regardless of CPU type.
