It's like reving your engine up in your car for more performance. Drawbacks, reving to much can blow the engine (destroy the chip), uses more fuel (electricity).

What it does is increase the clock frequency to boost performance. On the CPU it's more processing power, for the GPU it's more frames per second.


I've downloaded that progam about the video card a while back,but is there any realiable programs for my CPU?
I need more FPS Smiley Tongue

CPU won't increase the frames per second. But most people usually overclock their CPU in the BIOS. Sorry I'm not aware of a good program for the processor.


ah I see,thanks anyway


Thats a lie. The CPU increase will give you a small FPS increase like 1-3 fps. As for overclocking a cpu, usually you have to use the BIOS but if you bought something from hp or sony then your bios is locked meaning you can't overclock your cpu but you can still overclock your graphics card. For graphics card use rivatuner. I been overclocking for years and never have problems. Who ever tell you overclocking is bad don't know squat about it.

I have a VGA Unichrome IGP GPU... I think. My computer is very vague.

Where did you get your computer? Thats one of Via's integrated cards.

I never noticed a increase in FPS while overclocking the CPU. Perhaps by overclocking the CPU it indirectly helped the process of rendering the image. But the job of displaying the image and the speed will never directly be effected the clock speed of the CPU.

Thats why I said small, it will give you a small incaease but it's helpful for those with computers that are quite slow. Clock speed no but the architecure of the cpu is a big one and we all seen thise with the transition from the  prescott to Conore.

No the bios are locked in those. You can't overclock your cpu but most likely you can overclock your graphics card.
