X61 Undervolt (Linux)

#1 Post by nachetb » Sun Sep 06, 2020 4:45 pm

Hey guys. So im still working on my x61 and next step I cant seem to figure out is undervolting. Ive succesfully installed middletons bios, so I imagine i dont got the original bios installed. Thing is, this is my first time undervolting and I cant seem to find any help for undervolting in linux (in a gui based way, since im not that savy). Have any of you done such thing in linux or know any guidelines I could follow?

I don't believe there is any GUI undervolting tool in Linux for Core2 processors. You can do it with the phc-intel module together with cpufreq. phc-intel will need to be built from source and configured with bash scripts, though. That's the world of Linux.
