Cool 'n' Quiet technology regulates the speed and energy use of an AMD brand processor, reducing energy costs and extending the life of the processor by helping it to run cooler. The disadvantage is that your processor will not be running at full capacity constantly. If you have disabled the Cool 'n' Quiet option, because you desire full CPU speed at all times, the next step is to uninstall the drivers. A driver is a set of files that lets the CPU communicate with other components of the machine while in Cool 'n' Quiet mode.
