Hexus have been clued into the fact that Intel may or may not be releasing their own overclocking software for Windows which allows users to adjust options like FSB, fan speeds and boot screen logos.

This is certainly a big step in the right direction for us enthusiasts as it shows Intel is starting to support overclocking more openly since they have rarely ever officially supported it.

Intel are about to launch a new application which will enable the enthusiast to make changes to their Intel desktop board from within Windows. This of course is not necessarily good news for everyone, but if you have an Intel D875PBZ, or D865PERL mainboard you are in luck. You will be able to make some interesting changes from within this attractive and easy to use GUI. It will carry the following feature set:

1 - Easy to use, attractive GUI.
2 - Performance altering speeds, for example memory, FSB etc.
3 - Stress Test, this will put a load on the CPU to see if the system is stable (Testing cooling etc).
4 - Set the fan speed and the speed up thresholds.
5 - Put a logo custom logo on the boot screen. (Saves using the current Splash.exe).
