Overclocking, techniques for increasing your computer's performance




CPUIPro for  Windows NT / 2000

CPUIdle for Windows NT/2000 suspends operation when the CPU is not in use.

Under normal circumstances, the PC spends a long time awaiting commands and data entry. CPUIdle switches off the microprocessor when it is idle to protect the CPU from overheating and to prolong its life.

Overclocking can also stabilise a system. 
CPUIdle does not reduce the speed of the PC at all, and can enable certain options that may improve overall performance.

Both this and other utilities stop being effective when one or more programs make intensive use of the processor, which means that if you overclock your CPU it may be necessary to improve the cooling of the microprocessor.
