You can find this on my website when you click on the My Programs link, or direct download this here:

http://www.guruShane.com/myPrograms/myPrograms.htm

DISCLAIMER!!!!!!!!!!!
I will not be held responsible for any damage you may do to your machine by overclocking it, whether you use my program or not. Overclock at your own risk. :) You will void your manufacturer's warranty by overclocking, as well. This program is not to be reverse engineered, nor will I be held responsible for any damage caused by changes that are done to this program.
END DISCLAIMER!!!!!!

With that said, this program is harmless. It asks you for the maximum HT Bus, the maximum RAM speeds, the maximum CPU speed, the base HT you want to try, the HT multiplier, the CPU multiplier, and the CPU/RAM divider. It will then display the HT used, the HT Bus speed, the RAM speed, and the clock speed. :)

It's pretty basic, but it's a nice tool for beginners as well as experts that don't want to write the numbers down. :)

I'm still waiting on suggestions. If this thing is good to go, then I vote for sticky. :) We might as well let some new overclockers benefit from it.

Hell, I have no suggestions since well I'm a OC noob. Looks smooth and easy and works without error that I can see. Maybe you should print up a readme file for it that explains how to use it for the noobs who have no Idea what it means.

Good idea. I think I might throw a disclaimer in that Readme as well. I certainly don't want someone to try and sue me. lmao It's not like they would get anything, but still.

I took your advice. I got that Readme up and running. It's not exactly an FAQ, but it gets people started in the right direction. :) Thanks for the suggestion. If you have any others, let me know. :)

Hey man!
That thing works great! How do you write your own programs like that? That's tight!!!
Once you are done getting all the feedback you need, you should submit it to download.com or something. Good times!
And thanks for signing my guestbook!
The only purpose of this sentence is to put an exclamation mark after it since I seem to be addicted to that lately!

Hi! :)

Thanks for the compliments on the program. :) I'm going to use it when it comes time to overclock my AMD machine. I'm not really getting any detailed feedback, so I'm hoping that it has been done right. I guess I'll find out once I start overclocking my machine. :)

I use $1000 software to write programs like this, (but students can get the software for about $100. :) :) :))
I have studied this programming language for over 6 months now. I'm doing well with it. :)

That's good advice about submitting it to download.com. lol I'm not sure if they would want it, though. It's a very basic program. My budget wizard program is much MUCH more complicated.

Your site is looking good. :) I liked the pictures section.

If I had a good application for it I'd really test it out, but i have a bloody P4. I find simple stuff on download.com all the time that people or private parties HAD to have submitted. That site is loaded with that stuff!

My next chip is to be an AMD. I hadn't been familiarized to the world of AMD's. One question though, I notice that most pentiums have like 500 or 800 Mhz FSB or whatever and AMD's have like 2 Gigahertz! Is that what makes AMD so good? I've never really understood the FSB thing until now and just how important it is. I just saw AMD chips as being like 1.8 GHz or 2.2 GHz or so forth and Intel's as being 3.1 and 3.6 and what not so I was like Intel is the best! But no... lol

It's obviously just an idea and rough but I pulled a Christopher Lowell with it...

I hope you like ''thisth'' better. Oh don't applaud me...just "sthtop"

I have a suggestion for additional functionality.

The inclusion of wattage output dependant on amount of overclock/vcore desired to assist peeps in selecting a cooling strategy.

OC Watts = Default Watts * (OC Mhz / Default Mhz) * (OC Vcore / Default Vcore)

Nice work BTW

Suuup' Blue

1 small change

The way it should work, you drop the multi HTT multi to 4x, & the HTT drops to 800, raise the memory to 250, it should bring the HTT back to 1000

See what I mean?

OCGW

PEACE

Thanks Dave! That's a great suggestion. I'll add that as optional input. Is there any way that you could give me a link for that equation? I just want to make sure that I have it right.

OCGW, does that happen with every BIOS, or just certain motherboards?

Thanks for the suggestions guys! Keep 'em coming. :)

http://www.extreme.outervision.com/index.jsp and I've seen the same formula from several other sources, so I think it's reliable. Like you I prefer to check, double check and cross reference to be sure.

You might want to get someone like Mathemagician to check it over too. I suspect this may fall into his area of expertise.

Sean, it took me one day to create that. It actually took me maybe 2 hours altogether, to actually create the code. The hard part was figuring the layout, keeping the window small enough to fit in an 800 resolution screen, and keeping it organized. I spent a lot of time surfing the net for info on the equations. I wanted to make sure that it was right. The math part is extremely easy, as long as the formulas are right. (Each box that is filled with numbers was created with 4 lines of code per box. :)) This isn't bad for someone that has never opened the BIOS of an AMD-based computer, huh? lol
