Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 motherboard (turbo key support?)
Have just purchased a new computer, parts in question are:
Apparently the 8320 cpu can be safely overclocked to 4.0Ghz with something called a 'Turbo Key'.
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!
I never have the need to use turbo key & the core unlocker doesn't supported linux as the linux kernel enables all of the cores on boot.
On my mobo it's a switch on mobo
The software is for wins
The Turbo Key function does indeed use a Windows software, no Linux support available.
Seriously, this is actually a good thing, you should never trust a software that automagically overclocks the system when you want to have a stable system. If you really need overclocking (with a FX8320 this shouldn't really be the case) I recommend to do some learning how to properly overclock these CPUs. Keep in mind that you will void your guaranty with overclocking.
Thanks for the responses.
To be honest, i've never been into overclocking, thought i'd just aswell see if i can get this working.
The cpu is deffinetely fast enough already for what i need, so it's not much of a concern.
Seems odd that Asus would provide a driver CD for the motherboard that contains a bootable isolinux on the disc, but fail to ship any software that actually runs under linux to support these features.
