EVGA Readies Analog CPU Speed Meter

EVGA is known for several of its wacky accessories for overclockers using its motherboards. It's living up to its reputation with its latest one: an analog CPU clock-speed meter. By the looks of it, the device fits onto the case with its dial facing the user, latched onto the case using the side-panel screw. It connects to the system probably over the EVBot interface. Another possibility is that the device connects to the motherboard over USB (front-panel) headers. The meter's dial uses a GHz scale with starting unit at 1 GHz, going up to 6 GHz, with no distinct divisions between. So there it is, another means for you to show some momentary love to EVGA.

lol. I kind of actually like this. Completely useless from a practicality standpoint, but kind of fun.

I would never buy one, but I'd use it if it were given to me. lol

I like it and would probably buy it, if was somewhat cheap. But I can foresee placement issues arise.

If you get tired of it - you can cut the cable off it and use it as a tie clip or a cufflink

Good point though when utilizing Speed Step and such having CPU speed visible would be actually useful.

Start crunching and put a hand written post-it on your monitor with this text - 100 % CPU load :)

Although with Turbo Boost or Turbo Core it will make it quite confusing, I bet the needle won't stay put.

1 ghz = 1000 mhz = 1.000.000 hz. So you have 3 extra zeros in there.

1 giga = 1000 mega = 1 000 000 kilo = 1 000 000 + three extra zero's
