    my mcafee internet suite has expired (the one that came with the laptop) and i want to install just the mcafee virus scan plus because my subscription to it is good till next year. Do i uninstall through control panel -> programs and features before installing the virus scan plus? or can i install virus scan plus over internet suite so that i can continue to use the other features of internet suite but still get updates for virus scan?

    are you running RMCLOCK??

    even without RMCLOCK... intel CPUs now use speed-stepping,, they slow down to save battery and reduce heat when the system is not being stressed by heavy CPU load

    RMCLOCK download

    use it only for monitoring temps

    it has many nice features like undervolting your CPU to increase battery life and reduce heat,, but until you have read FLIP FIRE's UNDERVOLTING GUIDE at least 2 times and know what you are doing,,, do not even try to under volt.

    just install RMCLOCK and use it to monitor the temps...

    all you do is install it.!!!!


    LINK FIXED!!!!!

    Bigozone, I couldn't get your link to RMCLOCK to work.

    Also, is there a link to the undervolting guide?

    Thanks.

    Well, yes. When your CPU is idle, it uses things called CxE states to temporarily drop down to a lower frequency and voltage. Coming back to full power from these states is instantaneous, and it can help reduce heat and power usage.

    you may try searching thru the REGISTRY SETTINGS for the LAUNCH MANAGER program... and find the setting for the blue tooth start-up

    change it from 0 to 1

    if you can find it.. i have no clue where it is and don't have bluetooth.... my laptop doesn't even support BT.

    That looks like an excellent spec and at a price streets ahead of anything we can get in the UK!

    All the good basics are present and there are lots of upgrade options when the time comes :~).

    I thoroughly enjoy my system, and the config you posted is a better one than mine for roughly the same price.
    I say go for it if you want, but you might prefer a proven design like the 5920G instead.
