How To Overclock ASUS Eee PC 901 and 1000h

October 20th, 2008 · 8 Comments

ASUS Eee PC 901 and 1000h normally delivered with “Asus Super Hybrid Engine” software. This software allows user to increase the Atom CPU clock speed up to 1.7 GHz or to decrease the clock speed down to 1.2 GHz for conserving battery reason. The Asus Super Hybrid Engine works really great for most of Eee PC user, but some user simply want more possibility to overclock their Eee PC. Fortunately there is another tool to boost your Asus Eee PC into turbo mode. Enjoy the overclocking result.

First you need to download latest version of EEECTL from the original site or from gatzet file storage

Then extract the file using zip file extractor to some folder, for example at C:\Program Files\eeectl\

Now you need a text editor to modify the eeectl.ini configuration file.

For the Asus Eee PC 901 model, edit the [Settings] section of eeectl.ini and change to the following configuration’s value:

[Settings]
Core.Save = Fan;
Core.Menu = Speed,embed; Fan,popup; Backlight,popup; Core;
Core.Keys = aw+esc,Core._quit; aw+down,Speed._down; aw+up,Speed._up; aw+f3,Backlight._down; aw+f4,Backlight._up; aw+0,Fan._auto; aw+3,Fan.30; aw+5,Fan.50; aw+7,Fan.70;
Core.Icon = Temp.C,FFFFFF; Fan.;
Core.IconDelay = 4000
Speed.Profiles = 30,166,0,1000MHz – Low; 39,166,0,1300MHz – Medium; 48,166,1,1600MHz – Maximum; 51,176,1,1700MHz – Turbo Low; 54,176,1,1800MHz – Turbo High;
Speed.StepDelay = 500
Speed.FSBIconMul = 1
Fan.Profiles = 0,30,53; 25,58,54; 30,62,59; 35,64,62; 40,70,64; 50,75,65; 60; 70; 80; 90; 100,90,75;
Backlight.Profiles = Lowest,13; Low,25; Medium,35; Bright,70; Ultra bright,100;
[States]
Fan.Mode=1
Fan.Speed=

For the Asus Eee PC 1000h model use the following configuration:

[Settings]
;
; List of modules allowed to save their state.
Core.Save = Fan;
;
; List of modules to add to system menu.
; List consists of blocks “Name,Mode”.
; See the table above for the list of available modules.
; Mode can be embed(module menu items add right to the menu) or popup(module has its own submenu), default is embed.
Core.Menu = Speed,embed; Fan,popup; Backlight,popup; Core;
;
; Hotkeys list
; List consists of blocks “Modifier+Key,Method”
; Modifier can be any combination of a(lt), c(ontrol), s(hift) and w(indows)
; Key can be key name (like “home”, “del”, “g” or “8″) or key code (for example “%1B” for the escape key)
; See the table above for the list of the most useful methods.
Core.Keys = aw+esc,Core._quit; aw+down,Speed._down; aw+up,Speed._up; aw+f3,Backlight._down; aw+f4,Backlight._up; aw+0,Fan._auto; aw+3,Fan.30; aw+5,Fan.50; aw+7,Fan.70;
;
; List of icons to show in the tray.
; List consists of blocks “icon,color”.
; See the table above for the list of available icons.
; Color is 24-bit hex value in BGR format, FFFF00 by default.
Core.Icon = Temp.C,FFFFFF; Fan.;
;
; Pause between icon changes, msec.
; Set to 0 to disable automatic icon changing.
Core.IconDelay = 1000
;
; Speed profiles list.
; List consists of blocks “FSB,PCIE,Voltage,Name”.
; FSB is the real FSB frequency (70MHz stock, 100MHz max), not the rated one which is
; this value multiplied by four, or the CPU one, which is this value multiplied by nine.
; PCIE is PCI Express bus clock frequency.
; Voltage is CPU voltage flag, 0 for Low, 1 for Normal.
; This flag is ignored for all(and even named) intermediate values.
; Name is just what to show in the menu(”Suspend” is the special profile to set before entering sleep mode).
; You may omit Name in case you want to hide profile from the menu, however it will still be used as an
; intermediate value.
;
; Note that changing the frequency includes a step-by-step transfer through all intermediate
; values, i.e. if you change the frequency from 70 to 100 MHz and settings contain also 80
; and 95MHz, first the frequency will be changed to 80, then to 95 and only then to 100MHz.
; When comparing, FSB speeds are taken in account first and if they are equal — PCIE speeds get comapared too.
;
Speed.Profiles = 30,166,0,1000Mhz; 39,166,0,1300Mhz; 48,176,1,1600Mhz; 54,176,1,1800Mhz; 54,188,1,2000Mhz;
; Pause between steps in described process, msec.
Speed.StepDelay = 500
; Multiplier for the FSB icon. You may set it to 9 to see the CPU speed in the tray instead of the FSB one.
Speed.FSBIconMul = 1
;
; Fan profiles list.
; List consists of blocks “Speed,C_Temp_On,C_Temp_Off”.
; Speed is the fan speed (0-100).
; C_Temp_On(used in Automatic mode) is temperature(Celsius) when this profile should be activated.
; C_Temp_Off(used in Automatic mode) is temperature(Celsius) when this profile should be deactivated.
; You may set both temp fileds to 0(or just omit them) if you don’t want them to be used in Automatic mode.
Fan.Profiles = 0,30,53; 20,58,54; 25,62,59; 30,64,62; 35,70,64; 40; 50,75,65; 60; 70; 80; 90; 100,90,75;
;
; Backlight profiles list.
; List consists of blocks “Name,Value”.
; Name is just what to show in the menu.
; Value is the backlight brightness intensity(0-100).
Backlight.Profiles = Lowest,13; Low,25; Medium,35; Bright,70; Ultra bright,100;

naruto2 300x224 How To Overclock ASUS Eee PC 901 and 1000h

Before you run the eeectl.exe, make sure to turn off the Asus Super Hybrid Engine since these two software will not run together.

Now you can increase the Atom CPU clock speed or adjusting the LCD screen brightness easily with eeectl. Blogee has demonstrated a significant result of power saving performance on Eee PC 900 using eeectl and you can try it as well.

If somehow you want to go back to using Super Hybrid Engine after adjusting the speed, it may be enough to simply reset your clock speed at 1.6GHz and then exit eeectl. Another way to reset the clock setting is by powering down your machine, removing the battery, waiting a while, and then turning it back on with eeectl disabled.

If you still doubt about this tweaking and overclocking of Asus Eee PC 901 and 1000h perhaps you can refer to Asus Eee PC 901 and 1000h user manual book in pdf format which can be downloaded from this link (8 MB PDF)

    Hello !

    J’comprends rien au 1er paramètre du “Speed.Profiles”.

    Késako : “FSB is the real FSB frequency” ?

    Dans l’exemple les valeurs vont de 37 à 54 ?!?
    C’est quoi comme unité ?
    En standard, le bus fonctionne à 133Mhz et le FSB à 133 Mhz X 4 = 533 Mhz !

    Pour le mode normal on doit mettre :”48,166,1,1600 Mhz – Normal”
    D’où sort ce 48 ? Quelle unité ? Des MegaGlops :o ) ??? Quel rapport entre 133Mhz et 48 ???
    Bref c’est pas très limpide… :o (

    Quelqu’un a pigé la logique ?

    @+

    Steve.
