Since I was able to change the FSB on my Asrock board before it fried I had no idea that this small application existed. Now that I have an Asus P5PE-VM which gives -no- overclocking options it has become a neccessity.

I'm sure that someone has mentioned this before since it's from the same group that created CPU-Z. I didn't see it in the downloads section so I thought I'd post it.

I dig it!

Any other software for people in my position which may not blow as badly?

One quirky thing I noticed with this is that sometimes the clocks shown will have some sort of jibberish under them which requires users to close down ClockGen and restart it. I've had to close ClockGen three or four times before it showed the numbers again.

I agree, but also, as an alternative to clockgen, try RMClock, I believe it's called. But essentially ALL ASUS boards have overclocking options, just look deeper like stated above. I think your board is a M-ATX, so it won't OC very well, but better than you can get out of a software OC, no doubt.

EDIT: Nevermind, I did a quick search and I CANNOT BELIEVE Asus put together a board with no OC'ing options... wow... It's a shame too because the 865 wasn't a bad chipset and could have done fairly well for you :-\\

I'm kind of thinking I should have gone for another model. Oh well. It isn't much of an issue since as I've stated in other threads it's more about knowing I can overclock to a certain point. Not neccessarily using it.

I'll have a look at the other application you mentioned though. Thanks!

So I tried RM Clock and had no clue as to what I was doing. There's almost no documentation on it. Near as I can figure it simply throttles the CPU when the load hits a certain amount.

That's not quite what I had in mind but a neat little application otherwise.

I still don't see why people think software overclocking is so bad.

Because it also raises your Vcore, NB Vcore, Vdimm and every voltage imaginable to extreme lengths, sometimes producing "accidents" by this software. BIOS Overclocking, however, does not produce such a problem.

And this is why you don't buy the "-V" (Value) boards.

Perry, you've got some real potential there. I even notice you got some sort of aftermarket cooling going on. I'm sure you could find a really good motherboard for that 805 around $100 now. What was it, P5LD2 or something I was looking at a while back. I'll have to go look again. Really nice OC options on the board and OCing software too.

I use AMD, Intel, ATI, Nvidia, Mac OS, Windows, Debian, and Unix. There is no right or wrong way to love computers.
