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

I still don't understand one thing. Even after sliding the slider to 100% when I check the core status with the other app, it still says three cores are unparked! So I have to make the slider to 100% and then unpark those cores too with that other app, to run the CPU at full throttle or what? Little confusing.
Works for me now on 8.1 so far; thanks for taking a look at the problem! :)
are there any risk,s i should be aware of before using your product ? wont my cpu,s burn out if i put it on 100% ?
Both 4.0 and 4.5 seem to work for me now, thanks!
Try now I have updated files
oh i forgott, i use Win 7 x64 DE (german)
Though kudos to this great programm, hope you can fix this problem!
Same problem like Jason under Win 7 x64 too after the last windows update
There is some problem with the latest windows update for win 8.1. Working on this.
I start the program and it doesn't start. I tried installing .net 4.5 and it says I already have it installed on windows 8.1 64 bit. Why isn't it starting?
English.Sorry for the double post! My crash report is almost identical to the one Clark posted below.
