I've got a Shuttle XPC system that is running extremely hot. The BIOS says the CPU is running at 77 degrees C even when it's doing nothing but viewing the bios. It also heats up my apartment faster than my main (much larger) computer does.
Perhaps underclocking the system would cool it down? The BIOS it has does not appear to have any underclocking options. I checked the shuttle site and I do appear to have the latest version of the BIOS from them, so I was wondering if there was another BIOS I could install which would allow me to underclock my system.
Does LinuxBIOS support my system? How about any other open bios? If not then is it possible to install a later version of the Award BIOS even if it doesn't come from Shuttle?
Shuttle XPC model: SN41G2 V3
Means model name must be "SN41G2".
Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6.00PG
I think the CPU is an AMD Duron, but I'm not certain of that. It might be a different AMD processor.
