Overclocking profile tool sitting in system tray?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a simple tool that can sit in my system tray from which I can choose from two or three overclocking profiles. Kinda like the SpeedStep systray used to work (I vaguely recall it on a laptop I used years ago).

My machine runs happily overclocked but the fans make more noise than I'd like so it'd be cool if I could just right click something and choose 'Slow me down' when all I'm doing is BitTorrenting and sleeping 10 feet away from my PC.
Then when I turn the volume up to play whatever, I can right click and choose 'Speedy'.

Ideally I'd be able to change voltages rather than just clocks, and even more ideally it'd run under Vista. (I'm running a P5N32-E SLi mobo).

Thanks for any help.

I'm not sure of any good program that can do os ocing. I would just invest in a fan controller. Also you could make a one out of a resistor that would bring your fans down to 7v and then hook it up to a switch.

Turns out nTune can do this. For some reason I can't change voltages with it though. I'll have to look into it a bit deeper.

Thanks kennymester
