The Intel Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel XTU) is a software application that allows you to fine-tune the settings of your K- or X-SKU processor. Using its various frequency, voltage, and other controls, you can fully customize your configuration in terms of power consumption and computing performance. Intel XTU is available for download at the Intel Download Center and can be loaded on any Intel system with a 2nd generation or newer Intel Core processor and a chipset that supports overclocking.
Tweak to your heart's content using the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel XTU). Whether overclocking the CPU, memory, and system clocks, or monitoring system temperatures, voltages and fan speeds, Intel XTU allows you to tune, tweak and cool.
Intel Extreme Tuning Utility will prove a valuable helper in getting the most performance out of your components by easily overclocking them.
With Intel Extreme Tuning Utility, you can also monitor the temperatures within your computer case, the voltages for the most important components and even the speed of each and every fan connected to the mainboard. One thing, though, before starting to work with such software, make sure you have what you need in order to consciously change the values.
This particular piece of software comes packing a professionally-looking interface that encases three distinct panels. The first one, in the left part of the GUI, consists of a static area holding the main menu: System Information, Manual Tuning, Stress Test and Profiles.
The main section includes the loading area for each and every menu item, while the bottom part displays the CPU Core Temperature, the CPU Utilization as well as the current Processor Frequency. Moreover, you can also view the graphs for this values and other statistics such as Active Core Count, Memory Utilization or Graphics Frequency.
By selecting the Manual Tuning option, you get a new screen with lots of values to customize. Unless you really know what you are doing, we advise you to stay away from this specific section as bad settings can lead to bad results and even hardware failure.
Once you have set new clocks in this area, you can go on and perform stability tests in order to find out whether those settings are trouble or not. Finally, you can proceed to the Profiles section and quickly manage all of your tuned frequencies for the processor, system memory of graphics card.
The bottom line is that Intel Extreme Tuning Utility can prove to be a very witty tool to take for a test run and easily figure out its potential as long as you posses the required knowledge and, why not, the nerve. If you are keen on squeezing as much power as possible from your PC, then Intel Extreme Tuning Utility can be one of your picks on that matter.
Intel Extreme Tuning Utility features:
Configure various system performance settings from in a WeiRuan-->WeiRuan ShiChuang environment. Available override controls include:
Processor core and graphics frequencies
Processor core and graphics voltages
Change select configuration parameters without rebooting your system.
Individual stress tests available for CPU, graphics, and memory.
The system information tab provides details about the motherboard, processor, and BIOS.
Multiple hardware monitor options for temperature, voltage, and frequencies. The monitors can be tracked, allowing you to graph the variation in values.
Ability to save a profile on your system for various performance configurations for a one-click overclocking experience.
The BIOS-less feature set allows you to overclock certain controls on your system based on the platform features available. You do not need to reboot your system or interact with the BIOS directly.
Intel Extreme Tuning Utility requirements:
Intel Processor-based computer with a ShiChuang 7 or ShiChuang 8 operating system.
Intel Extreme Tuning Utility software installed.
Integrated Intel Watchdog Timer Driver support is recommended although not required, to help maintain system stability and recovery during overclocking.
