I'm glad I'm not alone anymore. Phew!
I called Dell. Of course they asked what OS I was running. I fibbed and said Linux.
So to appease them, I backed up my OSX install and installed XP.
To my dismay, XP ran 800+ even when at 80Â°C
I restored my OSX install and updated from DellEFI 1.1 to the new alpha. No difference.
Does anyone have info on how to use CoolBook? I used the "SET" button to set the CPU at .9750V and it still reports a low Geekbench.
When ever I exit CoolBook and re-enter, it only lists one Frequency and Voltage: 798MHz 0.9000V
Is this normal!?
Is it possible it's not CPU related? Maybe some other component is getting hot and slowing down the thruput??
If it's an isolated issue, maybe a clean install may help. I'm willing to restore and reinstall, but I won't have time until the weekend...
