    If I could just get ThrottleStop to set the Core VID I wouldn't need XTU at all which would rock. I can set everything else I need right through TS now except for VID, would love to ditch this XTU junk.

    XTU is awesome in my view, and I've been using it since the first version was released. I find it extremely valuable. You cannot do a couple of things without XTU. You cannot change BCLK on an M18xR2 motherboard without, and with the 18 motherboard you cannot change Processor Current Limit without it.

    Why don't you like it?

    It gives me the creeps! Well that's not a good reason, probably just an age-old distaste for ANY software from big bloated corporations, always preferred the homegrown stuff from the community. To be fair to XTU, I actually have things working well right now, just have to load the XTU GUI at boot which is a fairly minor annoyance as it takes its time, then ThrottleStop afterward. I also mirrored everything I could from XTU to TS as I know they play with the same registers. Why in the heck is BCLK locked in the AW BIOS anyway? They have the strap ratios in there and everything, you just can't do jack with 'em. From what I hear most Haswell are immediately successful at 166 MHz and ALL at 125. At least we got the partial unlock for the turbo multipliers, small miracle. I shoulda just disgorged the extra 5-600 for the 4930 but man I wasn't too excited about going over the 5k price barrier on a laptop. :eek:
