Have just purchased a new computer, parts in question are:
- AMD FX 8320 processor (3.5GHz)
- Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 motherboard
Apparently the 8320 cpu can be safely overclocked to 4.0Ghz with something called a 'Turbo Key'.
ASUS Turbo Key allows the user to turn the PC power button into a physical overclocking button. After the easy setup, Turbo Key can boost performances without interrupting ongoing work or games - with just one touch!!
I assume it requires some kind of kernel module or software to get this functionality? I just installed kubuntu to this desktop and pressing the power button starts a shutdown... i'm unable to find any software that enables this to work with linux (if there is any). There is a driver disc obtaining windows software that came with the motherboard, but obviously isn't of much help.
I came across this thread
, but it doesn't really explain anything more than i'd already figured.
Anyone had experience with this 'Turbo Key' feature? How can i get it working, thanks!
