Should I use Gigabyte Easy Tune 5 Pro?
Sep 28, 2007, 8:02 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
2 GB memory (2 x PC6400 DDR2 800 1GB)
550w TruePower PSU

Use the BIOS
Software overvolts too much without u knowing leading to future problems and higher power use

Use the BIOS. Easy Tune is worth less than what yoy paid for it.

use the BIOS then if you're a power saving freak change the settings so its stock or slower at idle and your bios oc when under load..
