Release Date: December 2, 2002.
VCool will cool your Athlon/Duron processor on Via KT133 or KX133(A) (VT8363, VT8361, VT82C691/693A/694 or VT8371 +VT82C686x) chipsets during idle. The Athlon (or Duron) enters a lower power state only when its system bus is not connected meaning when it's actually disconnected.
It allows you to enable this bit so your CPU can relax when there's nothing to do. Setting this bit might not be enough on some systems as the idle loop provided with the OS will not put the CPU into the STPGNT state recognized by the Northbridge.
For those cases it includes an internal idle loop that forces the CPU into the STPGNT mode required by the Northbridge to initiate a bus disconnect.
Disabled Anti-Aliasing for the mini-window font as this would cause artifacts with a background color setting very different from the current background. Font is uglier now but somewhat more readable on problematic backgrounds.
If you prefer the anti-aliased version of VCool (i.e. you don't use transparent windows) use this build10 archive.
