I have got two systems, one intel e5300 based and another amd 550. I overclocked amd to 3.8 and use k10stat to define p states, so that I save power when not heavily loaded. Could you suggest something similar for Intel E5300?

You may have a setting in the BIOS..Enhanced Halt State (C1E)..Your CPU supports C1E..If you have it in your BIOS, enable it..That will reduce CPU power at idle.

Also, if you have ,Enhanced Intel SpeedstepĀ® Technology,
enable it..Search what I told you on the Intel website and that'll explain things.

Actually I am trying to attempt something similar to thistom's cnq article
I would like to define 3 pstates for intel, idle stock and overclocked. :).rmclock seems to do the job but it wouldnt work for me on vista 64 or windows 7 64 rc, perhaps problem with uac

That's exactly what Speedstep automatically does if u read about it and enable it, u don't need to d/l anything extra, it's built in:

I understand that, but my mobo doesnt reduce volts in idle mode, only speed. I want volts to be low at idle, low cpu usage
