While Googling I found that to make my computer more silent I could set it in the Processor power management options overview.
Was it moved somewhere else? How do I set it?

You can enable some of these settings, but only do this on your own PC. If this is a managed corporate PC, IT has purposely hidden these using Group Policies or Registry changes!
First, check Policies in Regedit to see if it's hidden, and if so, change it:
It is also possible to edit the settings under the following keys:
To reveal Processor Performance threshold options, at an elevated CMD prompt, enter
- powercfg -attributes SUB_PROCESSOR 12a0ab44-fe28-4fa9-b3bd-4b64f44960a6 -ATTRIB_HIDE
- powercfg -attributes SUB_PROCESSOR 06cadf0e-64ed-448a-8927-ce7bf90eb35d -ATTRIB_HIDE
You can also change settings from the CMD prompt. To list current settings:
Then find the GUID for that setting and change it. For example, I found the following information for the Minimum processor state:
Subgroup GUID: 54533251-82be-4824-96c1-47b60b740d00 (Processor power management) GUID Alias: SUB_PROCESSOR Power Setting GUID: 893dee8e-2bef-41e0-89c6-b55d0929964c (Minimum processor state) GUID Alias: PROCTHROTTLEMIN Minimum Possible Setting: 0x00000000 Maximum Possible Setting: 0x00000064 Possible Settings increment: 0x00000001 Possible Settings units: % Current AC Power Setting Index: 0x00000002 Current DC Power Setting Index: 0x00000002
Using the GUID or the alias, PROCTHROTTLEMIN, this can be changed to a value between 0 and 64.
