    Default overclocking question

    My birthday is coming up and i plan on upgrading my gpu and powersupply, I can hardly run battlefield single player on the lowest settings (even though it suggests i use moderate settings) and it sucks


    Im planning on OC my gpu until i can upgrade (maybe even my cpu) but im new to this and i need some advice on how much is too much.

    heres my computer, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883227467

    im downloading afterburner atm, but with my powersupply and cheap cooling system how much should i overclock, i found a video where a guy overclocked 15% but i don't think that would be the best idea given my current cheap setup.

    Even overclocking that graphics card wouldn't do much. It's got a very low bandwidth, and not made for gaming.

    You can overclock your proc without too much overheating worries; the FX series processors run pretty cool, especially compared to intel. Just clock it to like 4.4GHz, make sure it's stable and the temps aren't anything dangerous, and you should be good to go. Or you could be more precise about it, going up a step at a time, etc., but I wouldn't worry too much about that since you most likely won't need any voltage changes to reach the low 4GHz clocks.

    Thanks, i OCed the graphics card to its limit, it has been jumping from 70c to 60 while gamingc. i tried going a little farther and the computer went on the fritze. ill OC the cpu now

    instead of wasting another thread, in your opinion whats the best graphics card i can get under 200?

    edit: I got all my cores clocked at 3990 mhz, im running at a high of 40c while idle so that may be an issue compared to the 20c i had before.

    windows doesnt seem to recognize the overclock since it still lists as 3.8.ghz, cpu-z says otherwise.

    anyway, i tried upping the multiplier and was met with heat issues so im probrobly going to stick with 210 mhz frequency, i also bumped my voltage up by 10%. GPU overclock is running well with no heat issues

    An overclock of 100Mhz is nothing.; 40C isn't hot at all. My proc hits 66c or so at 4.2GHz. Yes, it's going to run hotter, but I wouldn't worry about anything under like 70-80 (you could go higher, but I like to stay a little on the safe side). Use prime95 to max out the proc when testing temps as well, to see the max temp it'll reach and to make sure it's stable.

    I should try an over clock but I'm not so sure if I should until I get an other fan
