Hello everyone here is the new version of CPU core parking utility. I will not go into details about the core parking mechanism itself (read my previous post: http://coderbag.com/Programming-C/Disable-CPU-Core-Parking-Utility ) and for now will only explain application functionality.
Note: this is BETA version of the CPU core parking manager application, so I’m still working on it and will continue to make improvements. I'm also planning to add more functionality to it. With this version you don’t have to restart your computer anymore after you apply core parking settings.
Before explaining how to use this application, I would like to list currently known issues that I’m planning to fix:
On this screen shot you can see an indicator that represents CPU base frequency (not including turbo boost or overclocking settings)
On the screen shot below you can see "Current CPU speed" indicator that will show actual CPU speed. You can see on the picture that my CPU is running only 1.2GHz (some cores are parked), however the base frequency is 2.7 GHz and with turbo boost it should be ~3.4GHZ. So if I change ‘slider’ to 100% and hit Apply button, my CPU speed will always be between 3.2 and 3.4 GHz. However, indicator will only go up to 2.7GHz which is the base frequency of my CPU. (I’ll try to fix this later)
"Current min CPU speed" indicator will show your current CPU parking settings. If you’ll change slider position to increase/decrease min CPU speed percentage, make sure you hit apply button to apply changes. As I already mentioned after applying changes you do not need to restart your computer.
To run this application you need to have .NET 4.0 installed on your machine (same as for the old version). In case you don’t have it yet, you can download it from Microsoft web site: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17851

Really liking this, Set To 48% and Speedstep Still Works (2500k)
é bom , mas pode causar desligamento do pc em computadores ruins :/
This app is nonetheless a bit pointless. You're unlikely to see any relevant performance increase from using it, and indeed if you park it at 100% and forget about it for weeks/months, it can damage your CPU.
To those complaining/criticizing/trolling that this app's function can be done in the bios:
NOT EVERYONE HAS THE SAME BIOS OPTIONS, GENIUSES.
You can set this via your bios manually & set your Power settings to have the cpu always at 100%.
so i got a amd phenom 2 965 black edition and when i ran this it showed all cores at 100 pct right off opening it? so do i have no parked cores??
So I got this, slid the thing to 100%, and with 4 cores I now have 2.9 max.
Now can I leave it like this? Or is it gunna over heat and destroy my computer?
I'm not very tech savy.
I have windows 8.1 always crashes when i run the program
