Should I use Gigabyte Easy Tune 5 Pro? Tags: Overclocking Gigabyte Motherboards Last response: December 7, 2008 1:04 AM in Overclocking Share Mr_Badger September 28, 2007 8:02:36 PM Hello - I am new to overclocking. I have a Gigabyte motherboard and a copy of Gigabyte “Easy Tune 5 Pro”. This has lots of funky options such as a “CPU Intelligent Accelerator “ and a “Memory Intelligent Booster”. Is it a good idea to use this utility (if so what are some good settings) or should I just make changes to the BIOS manually? My system is: Gigabyte GA-956P-S3 (revision 2) Core 2 Duo 6300 ASUS 8800GTS 2 GB memory (2 x PC6400 DDR2 800 1GB) 550w TruePower PSU Windows XP Thank you.
