How to underclock a Mac running OS X 10.8.2?
Macs do not run at full CPU usage the whole time, modern Intel CPUs are quite at throttling themselves.
Why do you want to do it in the first place?
My C2D is running way too hot...
You could try coolbook:
It's still running within Intell's specifications. If is was running "way too hot" it would shutdown to prevent damage.
That doesn't work with 10.7+.
Then your machine has a defect. Take it to Apple to have it serviced.
This thread might help you to get it running under ML:
Even if that does get it working, it still isn't a good idea to use an outdated and already unstable kernel extension with an OS that it does not support.
Just use SMCFanControl to make your fans run at a bit higher rpm.
