Publisher's Description

Intel Desktop Control Center enables you to perform stress tests to verify system stability and to conduct performance testing to measure the impact of system configuration changes. The easy-to-read system gauges provide feedback so you can observe the effects of various system modifications in real-time.

This easy-to-use console dynamically displays temperatures, speed, and usage percentages, allowing you to verify system stability and check performance gains without rebooting into the BIOS. And once you have tuned the system to your liking, the settings can be stored as presets so you can quicly shift gears between "quiet operation" and "gaming mode".

Before a year ago Intel promised to do this software in order to operate with any Intel chipset based motherboard .

Software like this is made by MSI.

I think that Intel, just playing around, and there is no need for as to keep talking about it .

I will just ignore it , even if i do need something to test my 875I based motherboard.

Other than third party benchmarks.

Whoever submitted this needs to be WAY more careful:

1. Not only needs an Intel board, but ALSO Intel Bios!!!!!!!!

2. There are two distinct versions for different models!!!!!!!! http://www.intel.com/des...ftware/dcc/download.htm

3. Otherwise the install procedure will crash your system, and only a hard reboot will get you out.

PS the graphic does look cute: reminds me of my first ghetto pimp boom box-- somma y'all homies be too young to know what that was, know whatta mean?

A goose egg for not specifically saying it does not support all Intel chipsets.

I'm guessing here that this would not work on my Athlon 64 system... :-D

I am sure it works just fine for those who run supported hardware. As such I will give it a 4.

I must say it makes it quite easy to change bios settings and see the changes. As with stated before you must have one of those boards to make it work, which is adownside for those that have other models. But the program is far better then I expected as everytime I would manually change those settings I would have to restore my bios, just didn't like it I guess. but with the program it worked great, not sure why. If you have a D875 or D865 I recommend you at least try it.

I could not install it since I did not have one of the two boards supported right now: Intel Desktop Board D875PBZ or D865PERL

Too bad, I was looking forward to seeing this product in action.

Its great that Intel Finally created a program to Optimize your computer Mobo.

Negative:
The Intel(R) Desktop Control Center can be installed only on Intel desktop boards that support IDCC.
