You may want to have a look at /usr/ports/sysutils/fvcool. (If you'd like
a script to run it on startup, Dr. Matthew Seaman posted one to the
mailing list some months ago - January?)
[Please don't top post - makes reading long threads more difficult.]
I'm interested in those missing sysctl variables I posted @
http://126.96.36.199/freebsd/installation/sysctl_variables_missing. Using a Third party
application/script to fix something that was natively working or under control, I don't
think, is the way to go and causes another level of complexity.
Wouldn't you think?
Ah - I thought you were interested in effectively and easily lowering your AMD CPU temperatures by 10-20 degrees Celsius, rather than in getting help searching for sysctl variables that had been more or less effective for you in the past.
BTW, if you wish to do "natively" what the fvcool "port" does, the technical documentation at fvcool's site goes some way toward explaining that.
Sorry, my mistake.
