Software News   Software News : HyperClock - A utility to temporary modify CPU and FSB clock settings for Sam440
   posted by afxgroup on 3-Aug-2011 12:04:52 (5418 reads)
HyperClock

A utility to temporary modify CPU and FSB clock settings for Sam440ep boards (all versions)

Author:

Max m3x Tretene, Soft3

What it does:



* it allows to temporary modify CPU and FSB clock settings. The new configuration to become active requires a soft reboot, and will be active until the next hardware reset (from the computer case button) or until the board is switched off. After that the board will boot again with the original clock settings.
This way it's possible to safely reboot the board in case a wrong clock setting was chosen.
* it's possible to over clock and under clock the board. Under clocking may be useful in case you need to run the board for a long time on a specific task which requires low CPU power, for example, allowing to save on electric energy consumption, and lowering the heat produced.
* it reports some useful information on the board, and may help to solve some misconfiguration problems

BIG FAT NOTE:

* There is the remote possibility that something may go wrong damaging your hardware. Use this tool with extreme caution and at your sole risk.
Please beware that every damage to the board due to incorrect settings or misuse of
this tool will not be covered by the board warranty.

Nice work Max.

I love the SAM440ep; original speed at 667MHZ running at 778MHz

I wonder what the max achievable speed is for both the 440s

Cool utility. Great work. I think that with a good cooler i can go beyond 800 Mhz.

Ah, but it allows you to do nothing faster.

That simply means your board can't go that fast. Try lowering one or more of the settings. Lockups due to overclocking typically shows best under stress, like 3D gaming or when pushing the altivec unit (for those who have one).

Underclocking is way more fun!! with the lowest clock rate it takes only 4 additional seconds to load the OS, and OWB seems to work the same..

I love those SAMs!!!! Thanx aCube!!!!!!!!!!!!
