Intel XTU - Apptune on Z68 + 2600K?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So, guys, my setup is comprised of an Asrock Z68 Extreme4 gen3 + i7 2600k and I saw the other day an article ( http://www.techradar.com/us/news/computing-components/processors/intel-shows-off-automatic-intelligent-and-dynamic-overclocking-1180889 )about latest XTU (v. 4.2) and a new feature called Apptune. So, I downloaded and installed it, but when I fire it up I see no apptune option like I see in the screenshots and my question is, has anyone here with a z68 mobbo + sandy bridge cpu managed to get apptune going, or is this feature simply unavailable for this platform and expects higher/newer specs?

Thx!

Honestly, I don't think you will find allot of people here that use XTU, software in windows is not a good way to overclock. The ext4 has a decent bios, all overclocking should be done from there. There are plenty of guides here on the forums, and one aimed particularly at ASRock. I have one generation higher extreme4, and the thread is pretty lively with lots of active, knowledgable members. XTU is a software based overclocking utility that has negative effects on startup time and in some benchmarking results, as it resides in your RAM and takes up CPU cycles.

Here is the link to the ASRock sandy/ivy guide: ASRock

Thx for the reply!

I already have my oc profiles set at my bios ranging from 4ghz to 5.17ghz, so I'm ok on that front. The thing about apptune is that it allows for on demand overclocking per launched program without having to restart or manually adjust the clocks every time in Asrocks oc utility. A novelty, I know, it just struck me as strange that z68 and 2600k wouldn't be supported and I'd like to verify if that's the case indeed..

Gotcha. In that case I cannot be of further assistance, as I do not have that hardware combo.

AppTune is only available for Ivy Bridge, Haswell, and newer platforms. That is because the software requires a certain amount of realtime OC options that are not in the previous architectures.
