After installing the software in your Windows PC, you have to reboot it before Intel Extreme Tuning can be used. In the opening screen, it displays the system information such as the processor, graphics, memory, motherboard, BIOS and so on. In the lower portion of the window, it displays the real-time values for the CPU utilization, package temperature, core frequency, memory utilization, etc.

For tuning the various parts of your computer, you can switch to the respective tabs like the core, cache, graphics, and other. You can also run a stress test to test the CPU, memory and the graphics card.  Furthermore, it can also run a benchmark for your computer’s hardware which should be run after you fine tune the various hardware parameters for the graphics or the cores.
