Currently it is set at 60% meaning it will switch from P2 to P1 when processor detect 60% CPU load and the same applies from switching from P1 to P0.
This is the amount of CPU usage load before the processor decrease P-State to meet the minimum load requirements.
If you want the K10STAT icon to appear in the systray run the program under your username. If you run it as SYSTEM account the program will run too but it will not be visible. Click “Change User or Group” then Enter “System” then choose “Check Names” then select OK.
Or you can create it as a startup process as shown below. (RECOMMENDED because it will run before a logon is required)
**Please note a file called K10stat.dat containing the settings will be created in the C:\Windows\System32 folder because it is the default path for admin rights unless you changed the “Start In (Optional)” parameters, the setting just under the “Add Arguments (Optional)” parameters as shown below.
The program will load the settings from K10STAT.dat so make sure all the changes are overwritten to the file. When you launch K10STAT manually a new K10STAT.dat will be created in C:\Program Files\K10STAT which Task Scheduler WILL NOT LOAD. It will only load the K10STAT.dat in C:\Windows\System32 unless you change the “Start In” parameters to “C:\Program Files\K10STAT”. If you do not specify “Start In” parameters, the file “K10stat.dat” will be created in C:\Windows\System32 (Default Administrator Path) as shown below.
The following arguments are available (Source: http://dsus4.blog126.fc2.com/blog-entry-3.html)
2: Control clock of all cores together (Criterion is most loaded core).
3: Control clock of all cores together (Criterion is average of all cores).
4: Control clock of all cores together (Criterion is least loaded core).
Because Windows proceed on the assumption that cores are unganged by default.
AMD K10 Processors were designed originally to use unganged mode to conserve power.
-StayOnTray – use this option with -nw for Clock Control Mode.(Note after a sleep if the CPU registers are resetted, voltages will revert to default, hence you need -StayOnTray to ensure it is always running in the background)
“C:\Program Files\K10stat\K10STAT.exe” -lp:1 -ClkCtrl:2 -StayOnTray -nw
