Every gamer and even a geek wants to extract each and every drop of juice from their systems. All the systems are optimized for running at a specific speed but that speed can be increased through a way called overclocking. Wikipedia defines overclocking as follows:
Overclocking is the process of running a computer component at a higher clock rate (more clock cycles per second) than it was designed for or was specified by the manufacturer, usually practiced by personal computer enthusiasts seeking an increase in the performance of their computers.
More details about what is overclocking can be have from here.
ClockGen is a small software which combines overclocking of different components of the system and hence makes it very easy to overclock from one place. Another good thing about ClockGen is that it is portable meaning it doesn’t need to be installed. Just unzip it in a folder and run it from there.
A ClockGen software allow to dynamically overclock several devices of your system : CPU, memory, AGP and PCI bus
The main ClockGen window shows available functions on your system, therefore the layout may depend on your system specifications. If ClockGen is able to find a clock generator on your system, the buttons “PLL Control” and “PLL Setup” are present.
You first have to select the clock generator (PLL), so click on “PLL Setup”.
In some cases, ClockGen will be able to detect the PLL that is used by your system, especially if your mainboard is equipped with an nVidia chipset. In this case, you won’t be able to change the PLL model, and you can directly go to the “PLL Control” step.
Homepage: Although this little utility is from CPUID, I was not able to find this utility from their website. So I downloaded it from Extremeoverclocking.
