Hello guys, I need your help im using CentOS 7 and I want to make the cpu from full power to work at idle when it's not necessary there is command who can do that? I'm newbie so I don't know how to do it.

Right now,

I'm like this in sensors ->

Adapter: Virtual device
temp1: +27.8°C (crit = +119.0°C)
temp2: +29.8°C (crit = +119.0°C)

Adapter: ISA adapter
Physical id 0: +49.0°C (high = +82.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 0: +43.0°C (high = +82.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 1: +44.0°C (high = +82.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 2: +42.0°C (high = +82.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 3: +49.0°C (high = +82.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 4: +44.0°C (high = +82.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 5: +42.0°C (high = +82.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

How can I make the CPU work at idle I'm hosting CS:GO and when I don't have players online I would like to have idle and when the cpu got some load like 5-6 people online playing to activate the full power like these temps.

I'd suspect it comes out of the box set up to do that already.

What's the contents of the "file" /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor and /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_available_governors ?
