Step 5: Change CLR (MESH) Ratio Frequency The formula for CLR (MESH) frequency is CPU Base Clock * CLR (MESH) Ratio = CLR (MESH). CLR (MESH) is Intel’s new inner chip communication architecture. Its frequency correlates to the non-core parts of the CPU such as cache, memory controller, and communication between individual cores. To start set your CLR to 32 and continue on with the guide. After you have determined your CPU’s highest multiplier you can re-visit your CLR settings. Preference should be placed on obtaining the highest CPU clock. In general higher CLR values do not produce meaningful performance differences, but they may improve benchmark score. Set CLR (MESH) Ratio to “32”. 6
