    Lightbulb Need Beta testers for CoreMod

    Hi All,
    I have programmed a software to read clock frequencies, ratio, temperatures of the Intel Core i7
    It also give details from BIOS: proc, mb, ram, ...
    I need some Linux users and Core iX to tell me what's work or not
    Fyi my testbed is a Bloomfield 920 + Rampage II Gene X58 + 12 GB DDR3 (3x2 Corsair + 3x2 OCZ)

    Source code is available in my wiki:

    http://wiki.cyring.fr/index.php?title=CoreMod

    U just need to compile and run as root

    Let me know how it goes ?

    Regards,
    CyrIng

    I thought there is already i7z for this task.

    Off course, i7z is a great software and far away than mine, such as C STATS.
    However it does not fetch the Base Clock from BIOS, but does a division between current estimated frequency and Core ratio from MSR registers.

    I wanted another path which opened me to the BIOS instrumentation and the structure of components.

    If feasible, my next goal is to deal with core moding and on fly overclocking.

    To be short my main motivation was and is to go deep into the i7 & others specifications and share these readings through my software. DIY is my best way to learn.

    Any help & suggestion are welcomed. It's opened source.

    How about doing a tar.gz with at least a makefile (to compile and clean)? I do not intend to use copy+paste and remove numbers later. You can use git as well.

    Dealing with Howto Makefile + the 14K lines of the gcc manual take me more time than programming
    So far I wrote this and it just don't do what I want
    coremod --> bin
    coremod.o --> obj
    Code:
    CC = gcc
    CFLAGS = -O0
    APP_SRC=./coremod.c
    APP_INC=./coremod.h
    APP_OBJ=./obj/coremod.o
    APP_BIN=./bin/coremod
    #
    all : $(APP_BIN)
    #
    clean :
    	-@rm $(APP_BIN) $(APP_OBJ)
    #
    $(APP_BIN) : $(APP_OBJ)
    	$(CC) -o $(APP_BIN) $(APP_OBJ)
    #
    $(APP_OBJ) : $(APP_SRC) 
    	$(CC) $(CFLAGS) -c $(APP_SRC) $(APP_INC)

    Well i tried it without, compared to i7z you can not run show the frequency all the time, why not? If you want to test some more flags, how about aes, avx, ht? Why do i get:
    Code:
            Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770S CPU @ 3.10GHz       
            Base clock  @ 100 MHz
            Overclocked @ 3123 MHz
            1/4 cores enabled, 2 threads detected.
            Socket : LGA1155
            Tension: 1.0 V
            L1-Cache [ 256]     L2-Cache [1024]     L3-Cache [8192]
    I am sure my cpu has 4 cores + ht.

    timings.c is so tiny !
    it just requires to do a cc

    btw, this code will join next release of CoreMod which have the whole thing (Makefile, tgz)
