Retrorockit I like Throtttlestop software. It gives control of multiplier (overclocks unlocked CPUs only), and volts. It's really good when confronted with a locked BIOS. I got my Dell E520 to 4Ghz with a QX6800 using this.
Throttlestop 6.00 ( controls volts on LGA775 only)
https://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2288/throttlestop-6-00/

There is a Throttlestop 8.00 beta which has support for newer CPUs including 6-8 core. It has some support for volts on Core i #, but I don't know if it raises, or can only lower from BIOS setting. I don't have a newer computer to test this myself. I've seen betas up to v.6

Youtube here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRUfmPvaOzI

It has many useful features even if you don't O/C with it. Monitors core%, temperatures, voltage. Has a benchmark to test stability, and cooling. Can turn off Speedstep for validation runs.

haha216 No, you're totally right about the offline installs. Also, Ninite's software library is not very comprehensive. It's just what sprung to mind.

Kinda like what you're suggesting
Ah yeh ninite, i have seen that before ( i think in another "useful programs" thread on this forum ).
So with this, there's no worries about keeping the usb up to date.... just have any version of useful programs, and use ninite to install them all and update them to newest versions, nice smile.gif

But with ninite, the programs have to be installed for it to get the latest versions by the looks of it? Having the drive up-to-date could be useful for offline installs. Anyway, i'm being picky now, i'll look around to see what else there is, or maybe try to make something that'll sort it.

7Zip (people debate me on 7Zip Vs. WinRAR all the time, I just happen to like 7Zip more)
CCleaner
Rufus (saves you so much time when trying to make a new install on a flashdrive or burn an ISO to a flashdrive)
Ninite. (I keep an up-to-date version of a ninite installer on my flash drive. Contains Chrome, FireFox, 7Zip, VLC, Java, .net, Shockwave, WinDirStat, and Picasa)
WinDirStat (makes seeing large chunks of data that is taking up space on a drive very easy)
Speccy (for me, it is a must have. It installs really quick and gives you a very detailed list of all hardware that it can see)
AS-SSD (good for benchmarking how a drive is performing)
SiSoft Sandra Lite (helpful all around bench mark/stress test but it can be cumbersome at times)
CPU-Z & GPU-Z(like speccy but lighter, quicker and relatively limited.)
Core Temp (helpful for monitoring temps on GPU and CPU cores)
MRI BDE( Geek squad tool. It is hard to find but it exists in "places")

I have a usb filled with programs like this (most of those in the list and a few others) that constantly comes in handy when building pcs or fixing/helping. Everyone should have one in their backpack, along with their first aid box and zombie survival kit.

What would be sweet is a program that kept the usb up to date with latest version of all the softwares.... and it probably exists.... might do a google search.

ak2766 I'd like to see "PERC 5/6 simulation program" as suggested in the post below:

Cheers,

NinjaSushi2 I have an idea and I am not sure if it has been brought up yet. I was wondering if we could have a thread in the downloads section dedicated to benchmarking tools and software. I.E. We could put links to any and all current and from here forward benchmarking tools in the first post as they are presented to use later in the thread. If ya catch my drift. That way it could be a one-stop-shop to find any benchmarking tools you may want.

E.G. Metro Last Light, Crysis Benchmark, Prime95 newest versions, Furmark, Unigine, etc.

Xaero252 I would like to suggest "Dexpot" I stumbled across this utility while trying to replicate some standard Linux features on Windows and optimize my new laptop to better utilize its small desktop real estate (1366x768). Basically this utility could be looked at as a much less powerful version of Compiz Fusion, or a much better window manager for Windows, though it doesn't replace or directly upgrade the default shell. It gives you multiple virtual desktops (I use four myself), the Expose feature of Compiz, enhanced window management features (sending them between desktops, toggling always on top via keybind, window grouping and taskbar manipulation) and provides for a better overall computing experience (imo)

Very powerful little utility. Doesn't seem to impact resources very much either - 2.8mb of memory consumed and I haven't ever seen it use CPU.
