SetFSB is a software that allows you to change the front side bus (FSB) speed of your CPU without modifying the BIOS settings. This can help you achieve higher performance and stability for your system. However, overclocking your CPU can also cause overheating, instability, and damage to your hardware if done improperly. Therefore, you should use SetFSB at your own risk and only if you are an experienced user.
In this article, we will show you how to use SetFSB 18.104.22.168 to overclock your CPU step by step. Before you start, make sure you have the following:
A compatible motherboard and CPU. You can check the supported chipsets and PLLs on the SetFSB website.
A reliable cooling system for your CPU and other components.
A backup of your important data and a recovery option in case something goes wrong.
A benchmarking and monitoring tool to test the performance and temperature of your CPU.
Now, let's get started!
Step 1: Download and Install SetFSB 22.214.171.124
You can download SetFSB 126.96.36.199 from the official website or from a trusted mirror site like MajorGeeks. The file size is about 230 KB and it does not require installation. Just extract the zip file to a folder of your choice and run SetFSB.exe as administrator.
Step 2: Select Your Motherboard and PLL
When you launch SetFSB, you will see a window like this:
On the top left corner, click on the drop-down menu and select your motherboard model. If you don't see your motherboard listed, you can try to find out the PLL (phase-locked loop) chip that controls the FSB on your motherboard. You can use a tool like CPU-Z or HWiNFO to identify your PLL, or you can open your case and look for a small chip with a label like ICS9xxx or CYxxxx on it.
Once you have found your PLL, select it from the drop-down menu under \"Clock Generator\". If you still don't see your PLL listed, you may have to use the \"Get FSB\" button to scan for it manually.
Step 3: Adjust Your FSB Speed
On the top right corner, you will see a slider that shows your current FSB speed in MHz. You can drag it to the left or right to decrease or increase your FSB speed respectively. Alternatively, you can enter a value in the text box below the slider and click on \"Set FSB\" to apply it.
Be careful not to increase your FSB speed too much at once, as this may cause your system to crash or freeze. A good rule of thumb is to increase it by 5-10 MHz at a time and test the stability and performance of your system before going further.
Step 4: Test Your System
After changing your FSB speed, you should run a benchmarking and monitoring tool to check if your system is stable and performing well. You can use a tool like Prime95 or AIDA64 to stress test your CPU and RAM, and a tool like HWMonitor or Core Temp to monitor your CPU temperature and voltage.
If your system passes the tests without errors or overheating, you can try to increase your FSB speed further until you reach your desired level of performance. However, if your system crashes, freezes, or shows signs of instability, you should lower your FSB speed until it becomes stable again.
Step 5: Save Your Settings
If you are satisfied with your overclocking results, you can save your settings by clicking on the \"Save\" button on the bottom right corner of SetFSB. This will create a shortcut on your desktop that will automatically apply your FSB speed when you run it.
You can also use the command line options of SetFSB to create a batch aa16f39245
