    Overclocking

    I was over on ppcgeeks and found this. The cab installs to windows\performance.exe

    You might want to add the link or the file itself.

    I don't see the app? I've installed it to storage and main. It's not under Programs or Settings - System. Where did it install to and how to a tweak it?

    thanks

    For some reason on our unit it does not install to settings. You will find an exe in your windows dir called performance.exe. Run this and make sure you check the check box. Do a soft reset and you are set.. No need to run again unless u want to change the speed.

    None, but I will admit that I charge up every night.

    If you're not noticing a hit on battery life, I'd question whether or not its working. You might grab a copy of SPB Benchmark (it's free) and run some comparisons.

    If you read the linked thread it will explain further. The sort version is it's not. What it seems to be doing is getting rid of the step down feature and making the system run at the full 400mhz all the time. Now you may not see an increase in loading bulky programs but try it and tell me you don't see a significant improvement in your os speed. If you want to crank up the mhz you most certainly can with other programs on the market, but I actually feel comfortable leaving this enabled all the time whereas leaving it truly oc'ed kinda scares me.

    This definitely seems peppier.

    When I run performance.exe from windows...
    There is an option for "enable dynamic CPU freq..." 520 and 624. If I don't check this... does it just set the freq at 400Mhz? Do I have to check the "enable dynamic..." box?

    And... do I have to run this everytime I reboot the i760?

    Thanks!!

    Yes you have to check it and no you do not have to run it again. It adds itself to startup as silent.

    I was looking in the startup folder.. but didn't see the performance.exe... Does it call something else to start silent?

    Thanks!
