question on the "+" functions with my mvp3g5

Post by Guest » Sun May 02, 2004 6:21 pm

I just reinstalled win xp and am wondering if I need to install any of the programs that enable the '+; functions like powertweak or k6speed, etc. According to Sandra 2004 everything that it lists is already enabled, but I'm just wondering if there is other stuff that it doesn't list that is possibly not enabled. I used to use CPUCOOL to overclock and cool and I know that it enables some of those functions on some motherboards. I'd rather not use anything if the functions are already enabled, plus in xp the cooling function of CPUCOOL isn't needed I guess. Any thoughts? Here are my specs.

thanks for the help.

Effectively no. You can enable speculative write ordering with some of the tweak utilities, but it gains no performance. There may also be ways of optimizing write combining, but the only video card I've seen that benefits from that was the voodoo series.
