Full Throttle Override 1.00.422
Set your PC to maximum speed for specific programs only

Full Throttle Override is a tiny tool which will automatically set your PC to its "High Performance" plan for the programs you specify, restoring the previous power plan when those applications close. This means you're able to maximise your system speed for the applications which need it - games, say - while still keeping energy use (and battery drain) to a minimum.

Install the program and it adds an icon to your system tray. Right-click this, select "Add Program", and browse to the executable you'd like to accelerate. Later, when you launch this, Full Throttle Override will step in and change your power plan to "High Performance": easy.

Full Throttle Override also provides a few tweaks and options, if you need them. You can have it just increase the minimum CPU frequency to 100%, rather than change the power plan, for instance. You're also able to disable the program temporarily, and there are even multiple ways to customise its system tray icon, for some reason.

Exactly how useful all this will be is uncertain. You won't automatically see a speed boost just by changing power plans; the results will vary depending on your system, how it's set up and the applications you're using.

Still, if you would normally consider manually changing power plans anyway then Full Throttle Override is a simple way to automate the process. Give it a try.

Verdict:

An easy way to automatically switch to the High Performance power plan for particular programs

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
