Windows 2000 HLT commands
Sorry I havent posted in a while, but ive been gettin my website up to scratch. If you want, you can visit it at http://andywalkeronline.tk
Ive just modified my profile and signature with my newish specs.
Anyway, after building a machine for a mate, I got hold of her old parts. A K6-2 400, motherboard, RAM and case.
My Cyrix 333 @ 366 is acting as a dedicated server for Counter-Strike and UT for my LAN.
My question is, does Win2000 have support for HLT commands during idle times on the processor. In Windows 98/ME I use a small program called Rain to keep the processor cool during idle.
I read in the readme for Rain, that NT has its own HLT cycles built-in, but after having the machine on idle for 20 minutes and touching the heatsink, I thought better. The heatsink was hot.
Is there a similar program to Rain for NT based systems, as the Cyrix system is built in an AT case and has a Voodoo3 3000 and so, it gets rather hot even with a fan at the front of the case.
Thanks in advance
