Editor's Opinion
Smart little freeware that slows down your CPU when not in use and speeds it up as demand increases. Small, simple, yet very powerful and effective.
Editor's Description
Ever wondered why is your computer running at 100% capacity when you're not using it? Then check out this little freeware that helps you cool your computer, prolong the life of your CPU, and save a little electricity too.

Throttle is a great background tool for machines running 24 hours a day.

Also, if you have a program that runs too fast, (such as an old game), you may use the handy winThrottle to slow your machine down so it will run at the proper rate.

winThrottle uses a special feature in your system's hardware to modify the clock speed going to your CPU, rather than using software "delay loops" or HLT instructions to slow your machine down. This method provides very smooth slowdowns without any incompatibilities with software.

Main features:

- "on the fly" adjustability for the amount of slowdown.
- CPU load based auto-throttling. Slows down your CPU when not in use, speeds up as demand increases.
- simple to use interface.
- hides in the system tray when minimized.
- small memory and CPU usage footprint, machine can also be throttled with NO memory or CPU usage.
- command line support for complete background usage.
- completely compatible with other system slowdown utilities.
- free and open source.
