The frequency of almost all modern processors can be changed. If you play, run multiple applications at the same time, it is necessary to raise the frequency of the processor.
If you do not want to load the processor, and it can reduce in the near future.
Decreases the frequency to reduce energy consumption and reduce the speed of the cooling fan.
You will need
- - Cool'n'Quiet- Program
- - SpeedStep- program
- - ClockGen program.
First we need to deal with decreasingCPU frequency. To do this manually is possible only in the case if it was broken. The nominal frequency of the processor can not be reduced by the same methods by which it rises. You can reduce the voltage on the CPU, but it's a little different. The only exceptions are some models of laptops. In most cases, you need to act a little differently.
If you have an AMD processor, the lower its frequencyyou will Cool'n'Quiet program. It must be on a disk with drivers for your motherboard. If you do not have the disk, the program can be downloaded for free on the official website of AMD. Install Cool'n'Quiet on the computer. Now, when the load on the processor will be minimal CPU frequency decreases. When the load (especially when switching to 3D mode) CPU frequency will be restored to the factory defaults.
For Intel processors fit SpeedStep program. You just need to download and install it on your computer. The difference is that when you start the program you can choose the mode of the program.
To raise the frequency of the processor is well suitedClockGen program. Find on the Internet one of its latest versions. The program does not require installation. Just unpack the archive ClockGen in any convenient location. Note that the program may not be compatible with some motherboards. If so, the overclocking features, which will be discussed below, will not be there.
Run the program. In the window that opens, move the slider to the right top, and then press the «Apply». CPU frequency will increase slightly. If the computer is working properly, you can increase the frequency a little. If the system should malfunction, the frequency must be reduced. So pick up the optimum frequency of the processor.
