MACh Speed Control may be one of the best tools if you have a 3rd-party CPU in your Mac as MSC does more than turn on and off processor features.

V.3.4.1 is solid and this installer doesn't reek havoc.

Over the past few weeks I've had the opportunity to check out the other offerings in this genre of applications and I bought this one, again.

Even if it is "over-sold" a bit. Worth every cent.

i was running version 3.0.3 until i upgraded to tiger. after contacting daystar support, two weeks ago, i was told my product wasn't compatible with tiger, a update was due to come. on my request if it was free, i was told yes. now we have to pay for an "update". this company has no future. i am not going to recommend any of there products. this sucks.

Installed on top of v 3.0.3 on a G3 10.2.8 with a DayStar G4 ZIF and it took DiskWarrior to get the machine back.

Has anyone noticed HD errors after installing?

Apple System Profile reports L2 cache size as 0 (zero) K, btw.

Clear and unemotional posts will help Gary and company get this right.

I have a couple-year-old 1Ghz 12" TiBook. Running great. Installed this product and it completely locked up after I initialized with the serial number. Would not reboot; frozen cursor; weird sounds; flashing "sleep light"... complete chaos.

I'm a programmer and this machine is kept in a minimalized, pristine condition, with a recent install of 10.4.1.

With a Sonnet G4 800 in a PM 7500 running 10.4.1 enabled by XpostFacto doesn't work well at all. Under caches tab it does not recognize any cache at all. Level 2 or 3. No caches recognized by System Profiler. Much slower than the cache utility in XpostFacto that at least recognizes level 3 cache. Just wasted $20.00

I hear this thing works great, however it sucks that you have to pay AGAIN for a to use an upgrade you already bought once.

  • Boost CPU speeds on iBook G3s and fast G3 CPU Upgrades!
  • Isolate problem CPU and Cache problems on all Apple single CPU systems.
  • Run 100% compatible when Mac OSX is installed on "OS X Unsupported Systems".
  • Faster G4 speeds for applications in Mac OS 9
  • Better application compatibility for upgraded Power Mac G4 systems


As always, it provides performance and compatibility tools for Mac CPUs. Its features include configuration, testing and reporting of the CPU and Caches. MAChSpeed Control supports all single processor G3/G4/G5 Apple Systems and CPU Upgrades, in OS 9 and OS X with 100% assured compatibility and performance.

Compatibility:
  • System tuning. Works around a variety of processor errors in early G3 and G4 CPUs
  • System Information. Ensure accurate CPU details in Apple System Profiler, and Applications
  • Advanced AltiVec Support. True across-the board compatibility with AltiVec applications.
  • CPU Startup Speed Management. Available on 750 FX/GX CPUs.
  • System 9 through Mac OS 10.4. Supports, by far, the widest range of CPUs available.
  • Reset Mode. Allows the user to reset to defaults, if the CPU/cache fail at high speed.
  • Improved XPOSTFACTO support. Extends compatibility to older systems with OSX installed.


Performance:
  • Improved Memory / Cache Performance. Uses faster settings to maximize performance.
  • Semi-automatic Cache. Allows user to choose from tested “safe” speeds.
  • Dynamic CPU Speed Switching. Available on 750 FX/GX CPUs as found in the iBook G3 and on high-speed G3 upgrades. This feature changes the CPU speed on the fly via software (750 FX/GX only).


Testing And Reporting:
  • Automatic CPU/Cache Profiling. Exclusive system profiling and initialization at startup.
  • Factory Retest on Restart. Allows the utility to re-profile and test the cache on every restart.
  • Active CPU/Cache Test. When opened, the utility performs a looping CPU/Caches/RAM test.
  • Dynamic Status Information. Provides real-time updates of speed, CPU, and caches.
  • Thermal Monitoring. Will alert you if overheating occurs (750 - 7410 CPUs only).
  • Memory. A memory overview (with optimization) is available on Beige G3 and earlier machines.


Simply install and reboot. The smart cache features test your CPU and stabilize your system immediately. Checking statistics is just a click away. Open the interface to perform an active test, check settings, change Cache configuration or check RAM. Note: Does not support dual CPUs.
