Overclocking Tools for Linux

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, it's the linux noob again...

I'm looking for some oc'ing tools for linux. I need something like cpuz and hwmonitor or realtemp.

Actually... would those things work under wine? And given that this is a dedicated folding box, would wine running those tools eat resources?

Thanks.

nvclock (or enable coolbits in xorg.conf) for nvidia.

Running your applications under wine would be inadequate because they probably won't get the data from the system. CPU burn is a good stress test utility, but it is terminal based I think.

Lm_sensors reads most temp data unless you are lucky like me and have a mobo whos sensors do not work properly under Linux. Also the correct cpu speed does not show when overclocked especially when using a cpufreq scaling module.

I hate to say to say it but I always use windows initially when overclocking. Stress testing under Linux is great though, the best test I have found is to compile chromium on all cores, usually if it does that fine. I am stable on everything I do . OCs have tested stable for hours of stress testing in windows will knuckle under when doing the chrome compile test. Linux is just less tolerant of errors.

It doesn't seem to detect any voltages, but atleast I have temps on all cores, now...

Yeah.. this machine was stable at 4.8ghz folding solid for a month and a half. As soon as I installed linux, it would crash. Had to back off to 4.7ghz... but I'm gonna work on that now that I can see what my temps are...

I found a nice utility today called trayfreq (it is in the AUR for arch linux)

It works with cpufreq-utils and the tint2 tray. Lets you set the governor or a specific frequency in line with the multiplier steps. 3.33ghz appears twice on mine. Setting the top one produces the same temps as 4.01 so I guess thats it. It is handy for doing processor intensive tasks since I never know if cpufreq-utils is actually clocking to the top speed as both show as 3.33/3326.

it will. lm_sensors is more of a backend than an stand-alone utility. use something like gkrellm or computertemp along with it.
