fake cpu speed

One more addition to our list of cool tricks. This one is super-cool. What if you have a Pentium-3 or 512MB of RAM? You can upgrade to any processor easily – FOR FREE!!

I mean, you can upgrade to any processor… but not the “hardware”. Let me explain.

There is this trick, using which you can edit the system configuration your system shows. You can input any text you want. For example, you can put Inter(R) Deca Core GH7.2 GHz. Of course, there in no such processor on this earth, yet.

With this simple registry hack you can display any fake CPU speed configuration you wish for your computer. Please note that this hack will not improve the performance of your computer. It will only “show” the text you said it to show. Your computer will continue to function at the slow… I mean the “hardware you have” speed.

fake system configuration in windows xp

Press Windows + R to open up run and type in β€œregedit”, this will open up the registry editor. Then, Navigate to

H-KEY-LOCAL-MACHINE > HARDWARE > DESCRIPTION > SYSTEM > CentralProcessor > 0

In the right panel you will find β€œProcessorNameString” Double click on the “processor name string“. Now, value name and value data will be in front of you, now just type in the Configuration you want to show for your computer in value data and then press “OK.”fake system configuration in windows xp

Now see your system properties by right clicking your my computer icon and selecting properties or Just by pressing (WINDOWS KEY + PAUSE/BREAK)

Beware: Doing this can mess up your system. It will have that information and several softwares might have a problem in detecting actual configuration, updates might mess up. The processor speed will never change by changing it to Pentium 5 or more it just displays in the hardware that u have Pentium 5.

Whatsoever, it really is a cool trick to show any processor in system properties. Just try it, and show-off in front of your friends! πŸ˜€

    There’s absolutely no reason to do this. If you want people to believe you have a super CPU then just edit the screenshot in paint
