    What is SetFSB?

    SetFSB is a program that makes possible control the PLL(Clock Generator) on your board, so you can control the FSB and PCI/PCI-E buses while in Windows. That way you can overclock your CPU and system memory too.


    What is SetFSB Automatic Tool?

    I decided to make this tool, because when you shutdown(to power off/standby) all the settings that you have made within SetFSB are lost. Then you need to re-enter and re-setting the FSB again.

    So with this tool you don´t need to do anything, it will set a predefined overclock automatically on systems boot.

    Because the M570RU´s clock generator resets on shutdown(standby) but keeps its settings when you restart(the power is not cut), this tool will automatically detect that situation an will not rise the FSB again.




    How to in 3 steps:


    1________________________________________________________________

    Download SetFSB from here: http://audigyfiles.com.sapo.pt/AutoTool/AutoToolInstaller.rar

    Extract and run the AutoToolInstaller.exe. Accept and click the install button. (It will create a folder with the SetFSB files on C:\)

    2________________________________________________________________

    Then download(below) the SetFSB Auto Tool Configuration and Auto Tool OC ON. Place the both .exes anywere you like, desktop, programs, etc.

    If you need to reset your CPU to the stock frequency, just download(below) the SetFSB Auto Tool OC OFF. Place it anywere you like, desktop, programs, etc.

    3________________________________________________________________

    Now, run the Auto Tool Configuration Utility. It will ask for the stock CPU frequency. Enter it on Mhz units. Then click [OK].

    [​IMG]

    Next it will ask for the Max multiplier of your CPU. Enter it. Then click [OK].

    [​IMG]

    Finally it will ask for the desired overclocking frequency. Enter it on Mhz units. Then click [OK].

    [​IMG]

    Example: For one Intel Core 2 Duo T7700

    Stock CPU Frequency: 2400
    Max Multiplier: 12
    Overclocked CPU frequency: 2900


    If you have problems knowing about any of these fields, try the Intel Processor Spec Finder Database.

    If you still have doubts, just ask here that I will gladly help you.




    Now, if you want to apply the overclock automatically to the CPU when your system boots up, just follow these 3 steps:

    1________________________________________________________________

    Click Start -> All Programs -> Startup. Right click over "Startup", chose open/explore.

    [​IMG]


    2________________________________________________________________

    Now that we have the Startup folder open, copy the SetFSBAutoToolOCON.exe to the Startup folder.

    [​IMG]


    3________________________________________________________________

    Finally, check the Startup folder via Start Menu to confirm.

    _________________________________________________________________

    Make sure that you have selected the correct and funcional PLL/Clock Generator for your machine. (Clevos M570RU/71RU/72RU/73RU use the ICS9LPR363DGLF PLL).

    SetFSB Auto Tool Configuration - http://audigyfiles.com.sapo.pt/AutoTool/AutoToolConfiguration.rar

    This tool will configure your overclock profile. Just copy it to your desktop or any other place and double-click on it.


    SetFSB Auto Tool OC ON - http://audigyfiles.com.sapo.pt/AutoTool/AutoToolOCON.rar

    Every time your computers starts or you run this tool manually, the SetFSB Auto Tool will automatically apply the predefined overclock to your CPU. Remember to test first in small Mhz steps.

    One tray baloon will automatically pop up, warning you about the overclocking frequency that was applied to your CPU:

    [​IMG]

    If in the future your don´t want the overclock automatically applied on system boot, just delete the .exe from the Startup folder. If you want to set another overclock frequency, just run the Auto Tool Configuration utility.



    SetFSB Auto Tool OC OFF - http://audigyfiles.com.sapo.pt/AutoTool/AutoToolOCOFF.rar

    This tool will reset your CPU to stock speeds when overclocked. Just copy it to your desktop or any other place and double-click on it.

    I will upload the tool in a few hours... I´m only doing some final testings on various machines to make sure that everything is ok.

    First things first - you need to find YOUR PLL/clock generator among SetFSB's list in order to actually manipulate it. There are only two ways to find out your PLL:

    1. Open up your laptop, find it on the motherboard and then look at what it say it is.

    2. Instead you can just try with every PLL generator in SetFSB, until you get the correct one. The correct one will show your CPU frequency as identical to the one in CPU-Z. Find it via trial and error.

    ;)

    Thanks ;)

    I´m glad I can help!

    Remeber, the PLL is not CPU dependent... it is located on your motherboard, so it´s model/platform dependent.

    Try all the PLLs listed on SetFSB, thats the easiest way.

    ;)

    Unfortunately the PLL of the D901C has some kind of lock on the SMBus... leading to an impossibility of changing the FSB via softmod(PLL Registers).

    :(

    the manual method seems too risky and too time consuming. is there a like a catalog or reference material that i cam look at with my system info to find out the ppl

    how much difference does overclocking a c2d a couple hundred of mhz really make?

    Hey Audigy. Glad your still working with your little tool. Noticed you started a new thread for SetFSB Auto. Was the other just too old and crowded or what?

    Just wished mine were also supported:)

    Great job Audigy, you deserve a lot of credit for this...

    There is no risk trying the SetFSB PLLs list...

    About the difference that overclocking makes, is the same difference when you chose to buy an T5750(2Ghz) over an T5550(1.83Ghz).

    BTW, your T5750 has a stock CPU frequency of 2000 and a max multiplier of 12.

    ;)

    Hi emike,

    I realized that this new version was quite different from the old one, and at some time if I used the old thread, could be confusing on about how we can use the tool if we read the comments about the older tool.

    Now there is a simple GUI with user configurable fields, wich is different from the fixed configuration of the older tool.

    Now you have it! No FSB limits. ;)

    Thanks eleron911 ;)

    Unfortunately I can´t help in that field... SMBus/PLL Registers control and programing is way beyond my humble knowledge...

    Thanks to everyone´s support!

    Great Job Audigy! I have been using your setFSB auto-tooll for quite some time now, 8 months I believe. I cant wait to try this one out!

    Thanks naticus ;) I will release it this night...

    Just testing it on all the machines I can... some optimizations here and there, but the source code is finished. :D

    Great tool, Audigy. Thanks!

    Still no support for the PM45 Express chipset... sadness.
