I am wondering is there a free program that you can OC you Processor because my mobo(intel) has locked my out of it:(. Also i OC'ed my 9000pro using the ATi tool but the setting won't stay after i restart my comp:uhm:. IS there something I'm doing wrong?
In order for your video overclock to stay, i suggest using RivaTuner. Set its settings to load on startup. That way they stay locked.
I don't know any software for overclocking CPUs. I've never tried and don't really want to.
you can also use radlinker to overclock specific progs (such as games) this way, when you boot, your vid card stays at default settings, but, if you start a game using radlinker, it sets the O/C settings, and returns to normal when your done playing
as for the CPU, my bios alows me to O/C, so i never bothered to look for an outside prog to do it.
Hey I tried some googleing and still can't find a program for OC'ing my CPU. Does anyone know of one?
I read that a good CPU idels at 40C and runs at 55C.
mine idels at around 30C and I need to get a reading of when I am running it.
So if would OC i should not have any problems with heat.
Hey PettheGreat, I have an intel MOtherBoard also and they cannot OC CPUs in the BIOS, all my friends said so after i ordered my MotherBoard, it really sucks!
I don't know any overclocking programs for CPUs, but I know that RivaTuner is good for your graphics card. Perhaps the problem was that you didn't test the speed it was going at before restarting. There may have been an option to test which you didn't use, meaning everything is reset afterwords. Remember to gradually overclock, not in one go.
If your PC is quite new, the processing speed doesn't make much or a difference any more. The main deciding factors nowadays are the amound of RAM on your Motherboard and Grpahics card, the amound of cache in the processor and the data transer speed.
If your processor is over 2GHz I wouldn't bother doing it - it is risky anyway, and it won't make much of a difference.
Hope this helps.
You would have to erase your current bios and load it with a new one. With this you can get your CPU overclocked around 10%. Just get a Bios update program by searching google.
I'd really be careful about flashing BIOS with a ROM that was not originally intended for the particular board you are using. If it doesn't work, you'll end up with a nice looking doorstop. As far as OCing apps that run from windows, the only ones I seen are made for the specific MB that they were intended for. I have a Gigabyte MB. They have one called Vtuner or something. I never use it I just go into BIOS. That sucks about not being able to OC. I guess you can't even change voltages either. That double sucks.
Operative34997 That sucks about not being able to OC. I guess you can't even change voltages either. That double sucks.
yes and then there is a "burn in" program made by intel and my mobo can't run it:bawl: . At lest I can still oc my graphics card:naughty:.
