Default Software to OC my CPU

I fully understand I should use my bios, and I will when I get my new board. I have tried everything to fix my current board - no dice.

Any suggestions on software to OC my CPU?

Wow used this program a long time ago surprised it' still around. From the there page they don't seem to support any Nvidia chipsets which is what ti OP has and it's looks like they only support mainly older chipsets. Did Asus not provide any kind of soft overclocking tool with the MB, it might not allow for high overclocks but it might give you a small bump?

Personally whenever i OC i prefer to do it straight in the bios, maybe i'm just old school like that. To my knowledge asus has "newer" (at least to me) software that can be used to OC however i haven't used it nor can i remember the name of it. It'll be in Asus's download section under utilities

There should be something on your Asus motherboard CD that will allow for 'some' overclocking. Granted I tried this once and it wound up underclocking my CPU because it was totally borked. Stick with the BIOS.

I think OP has problems with his board and bios that's why he's asking for software.

Works perfect fine on my ASUS P5Q-E.

Either learn to overclock from the bios or don't do it at all.

Software = garbage.
