Lower AMD CPU temperature

Last Modified: 2012-08-12
Hi All,

I have a media center running this CPU and this motherboard.

The CPU fan makes quiet a lot of noise when the under load.  Is there a way limit the CPU or something to get it to run below 40 degrees?

Ideally via software, so I can remove the limit when I need more horse power.
