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

How do I use this ?
Parking Status is a small Windows gadget that will show and changes CPU cores parking status. This feature cannot be managed by standard Windows means.
Hi, i really need help figuring out what this util does. I ran it on server 2012 r2 and now only 1 core per socket is active. my os tries to stuff everything into 2 cores out 36, but it only does it on some systems and works great on. I booted it inot another image, pre-util and it is still only using 2 cores out of 36. changing util settings dont make a difference and bios has been reset ot defaults. please help me figure out how to get my cores back.
After using this utility and your older utility, my cores up to 6 of my cores get parked now and then. I'm using an AMD fx 8380 chip and would really like to unpark all 8 cores.
