I have decided to put together an Essential Overclocking Software Kit for members and guests who are new to world of overclocking. The reason why I have chosen to do this is to facilitate their needs in terms of what software they will need to Download.

What is included in the Kit:
If you are just looking for a specific Download than please click on the program itself.

You should have Orthos and MemTest in there

I put only Prime 95 in there because from what I have been told it is better than orthos for stressing Quad cores. Memtest86+ is a memory diagnostic tool, not so much useful when your overclocking. If I could of I would have put all of the downloads in there since they are all very useful. But it would defeat the purpose of having a small essential overclocking software kit.

Thanks man. You are ON the job.

LegendaryC 02-23-2008 06:53 PM

No RivaTuner? I can't get ATiTool to work, and I know many other people have the same problem.

RivaTuner has given exclusive rights to guru3D; therefore, we do not have the permission to host it on overclock.net.

This is the reason I have left it out of the kit.

Okay, but Memtest has to be there. When you overclock your ram, you need to know if its stable or not. It's very useful, i dont see how you say its not. Everyone uses MemTest86(+) to test if they're RAM OC is stable. I say it should be included, and it would still be a small overclocking software kit. It's what you need to be stable in all areas.

EDIT: Oh, you put it there now. lol Thanks!

Yup I forgot that only orthos had the blend test included. Since it was requested to have it replaced with Prime 95 I completely forgot about the RAM stability.

mega_option101 02-24-2008 09:48 AM

Thanks for all your input on the kit. I am glad to see that it is being used by members and guests.

I will keep it updated when new versions are released.

SZayat 02-24-2008 11:19 PM

A must have

REP+... oops I can't

Blameless 02-24-2008 11:54 PM

Good list.

However, I would like to see S&M (from testmem.ru) included. I have used it to diagnose several elusive CPU and memory instabilities that Prime95 and Memtest86+ could not find, even after days of continuous testing. I haven't found any single program that is as strenuous.

Edit: I should note that S&M does not seem to work correctly with Vista.

ericeod 02-24-2008 11:58 PM

I suggest you include the Vista 64 CoreTemp patch with the zip file.

iandroo888 02-25-2008 12:16 AM

maybe put OCCT and Everest on tehre too

skunksmash 02-25-2008 12:18 AM

Rivatuner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

carl25 02-25-2008 12:22 AM

never used memtest or prime95

Intel tat is good for temp and stressing.

This is meant to be an essential overclocking software kit. There is no way that it would be practical if I was to include every program inside it. Thanks for your input nonetheless

Nice List.. Thanks for posting

JadeMiner 02-25-2008 04:56 AM

Excellent selection. I wish I would have had this when I first started overclocking. It would have saved me a ton of time surfing, and a huge pile of hair on the floor!

Good Job. Thanks

Thanks for your kind comment

I will think of more ways to make it easier for members and guests to find exactly what they are looking for. Two examples are located in my signature below. "Welcome to Overclock.net's Downloads Section" and "Overclock.net's Downloads View Count"

Enjoy

Yes. I just checked them and saw some utilities I never knew about. Thanks!

I checked your folding stats on kaostats.com - SOMEBODY is using SMP and the core with 1760 credit points. SOMEBODY is going to zoom up in the rankings

Team Overclock.net is making a breakout. http://folding.extremeoverclocking.c...php?s=&t=37726

nepikez 02-26-2008 08:03 PM

great post! exactly what i was looking for

nub Q here though:

I assume everyone uses their BIOS to change the vcore, multiplier, etc
but I was wondering, what your guys thoughts were on something like this

http://www.techpowerup.com/systool/

let the software slowly increase the setting and check stability and then, after that does all the testing for you, you can permanently change the setting in your BIOS....

Thanks... as i said... nub here,

Soft clocking isn't stable and isn't permanent, which is why you overclock through your BIOS. I'd rather experiment through my BIOS (to learn it and its various functions) then use a program and not now how to apply it to my BIOS. You can always reset your settings in your BIOS if the overclock isn't stable So its not like a get it right or else... It is more of a trail and error process, which will allow you to gain experience and knowledge from.

I would suggest you to read up in the AMD CPU section on some of the overclocking guides they have in there.

Thanks for asking as I am sure many have wondered the same thing

ah, not stable, great to know, thanks!
next stop, AMD CPU search, lol

I have updated the Kits to include the latest version of Prime95

Enjoy

gymenii 03-02-2008 07:40 PM

Very handy all-in-one package. I wish this had been available way, way, way back when I started OC'd. Thanks

Its also a great way to get all the updated versions of those programs too

slimjim_8o 03-03-2008 11:37 AM

quick question. obviously core temp is a great prog for checking core temps...imagine that. but what should i be using to check ambient temps?

I like Everest for that...

mega_option101 03-06-2008 11:57 AM

Core Temp 0.97 has been recently added to the kit to replace the old version.

Now that 0.97 supports Vista x64 there is no more need for two separate kits.

Enjoy

Fox_Smash 05-12-2008 07:55 PM

wow,thank you this is very useful.

Claentor 05-12-2008 08:11 PM

Exactly what I need to begin my own overclocking. I really didn't know what I needed, and spamming forums isn't my style. Thank you for taking the time to compile and provide the programs necessary all in one package.

-This be Claen'tor, signing off.

fertality 05-13-2008 03:24 AM

wow thanks for shareing

MasterKromm 05-13-2008 11:14 AM

Nice list... +1 cookie!

Maybe you'd like to add Memset?

-link to homepage- \\\\\\\\//// -link to XS discussion-

prosser13 05-13-2008 11:20 AM

Looks great

Couple of points - is CPU-Z the latest version? They've just updated it to V1.45 I believe

Any chance of Orthos? It's a lot easier to use than Prime95 and seeing as it's accepted everywhere I can't see any harm in having it - hell, it's more accepted than Prime95 nowadays!

Any chance of getting MemTest for Windows in there too?

http://hcidesign.com/memtest/

It's really handy as you don't have to create a bootable disc - I've been using it for years now and it's great

Thanks for the kit Mega!! I'll be using this when I go to oc my 6550. And, Blameless, you have been sigged.

mega_option101 05-16-2008 07:52 AM

Updated the kit with the following:
  • Core Temp 0.99
  • GPU-z v0.2.1
  • CPU-z v1.45

Excellent selection, but what about RealTemp for those 45nm chip?

mrblaineng 05-26-2008 01:22 PM

Wow, this is a very nice package for newbies like me. I am in the process of playing around with them on my current computer so I can be more skillful at these apps when I get my new build.

These are all safe programs. The applications themselves cannot harm your computer but the stress (heat/temperature) could, so I would recommend you to monitor your CPU temps with Core Temp while running Prime95 as it'll stress your CPU.

stphung 07-01-2008 10:30 PM

Thanks much for this, it will be helpful on my journey to build a new 6600 system.

Stormblade 07-02-2008 02:06 AM

Running a Pentium D here, what should I use instead of core temp?

conor-w 10-02-2008 03:54 PM

ok this is a really great help or noobs like me, but is there an actual basic overclocking guide on this board that anyone is aware of? also does it matter whether you dual core or quad core etc. when using CoreTemp?

Look in the Intel Motherboard Section of the forums for a guide on how to overclock it. As for Core Temp it doesn't matter if you have a Dual or a Quad Core

conor-w 10-02-2008 04:15 PM

thanks for the quick reply, great thread.

XFreeRollerX 10-31-2008 01:32 PM

Can I suggest including PRIME95 x64 edition too?

Now I used to use Orthos because it would hammer the CPU at 100% for as long as I wanted to run it. Now if I run that version of Orthose it only hammers 2 cores at 100% and leaves the others alone. Somebody please recommend something for me.

P.S. I am running Vista Ultimate x64
I doubt anyone is gonna respond here. Try posting in this section...

i wouldn't count on it, most laptops don't overclock well or much if at all.

EDIT: i have to update this package to the newest versions of the included software, should have it done today.

kwanghyun 05-02-2009 08:07 AM

what would be the best to stress test mine to the extreme??
i want to shake up my laptop a bit to get it goin again :]
i ran orthos on it just a couple hours ago.

[PWN]Schubie 05-03-2009 09:28 AM

package now has up to date software in it

Zensou 05-03-2009 11:33 AM

IntelBurnTest should be in there.

prosser13 05-04-2009 04:25 AM

Would love to see LinX in there - it's a great piece of software

gothev 06-29-2009 11:33 PM

I think you should OCCT Linpack in there. That's probably the most sturdy stability testing program

ATItool -> Ryzen Master

Rest should be alright.

I was out of the game awhile, but need to refamiliarize myself. With the forum, overclocking, in general. I've been letting stuff sit at the clocks it was at, but about to mess with a 5650 today
