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

Why can't I download the program? says it can't findd the program.
I know that your program works great. However I am trying to achieve a different way than most others. I have a bulldozer 8120 8 core. With you program set to 0 it will only park 4 cores. I would love to have it park 6 or 7 cores at need as heat in my room rises fast in the summer and I am just watching anime anyways most of the time. Could you add a setting to manually set the number of core to be parked if possible or tell me how to do so via registry?
my antivirus blocked download links.
where is the download button?
Worked for win 10
It works on xeon e5450 and win8.1
IF IT ISNT WORKING MAKE SURE YOU ARE RUNNING THE RIGHT ONE FOR YOUR NET FRAMEWORK - 4.0 OR 4.5 . THE COREPARKINGMANAGER45.EXE RUNS NET 4.5 .
i was strating to loose it because i couldnt unpark all of my 8 cores.. used this program of yours and BOOM! its worked :) and very nicely too, cant actually thank you enough!
Thanks for taking the time to make this lovely app.
