I have a first generation i7 computer and it is prone to overheating. How can I set the CPU clock frequency in Fedora?


Use the command cpupower --cpu all frequency-info | grep "current CPU" to see what the frequency the cores are running at.

Use the command cpupower --cpu all frequency-set --max 1.4GHz to set the CPU frequency to 1.4GHz
