Cool 'n' Quiet !

Implemented on the K8V Deluxe motherboard, AMD Cool 'n' Quiet! Technology is the latest feature found on ASUS solutions. Cool 'n' Quiet! enables the CPU to monitor system loading and automatically tune CPU voltage and frequency, which results in lower temperature. Speed of the cooling fan is intelligently adjusted according to CPU temperature fluctuation from CPU loading adjustment, conserving power and reducing noise from the fan motor at the same time. If you are not using AMD's packaged fan, simply activate ASUS' Q-Fan feature to enjoy a quiet operation. The application interface of Cool 'n' Quiet! Technology clearly illustrates CPU status, providing a cool and quiet computing environment that also lengthens the lifecycle of CPUs and fans.
