I think overclocking is putting more stuff on your comp than the memory has room for. It slows it down drastically. That's just what I always thought. But I'm no computer whiz either.


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

Overclocking the GPU has the most noticable result. If you want to overclock the graphics processor download a program called RivaTuner. Once you have the GPU unlocked from it's factory speed, I recommend you install the newest drivers for you video card. Open up the video card manager which both ATI and NVidia have. Since I'm only familiar with NVidia I know it will be able to optimize the settings for you, but it only will if you have the video card unlocked which it will not allow you do from the manager.



What would happen if I tried to use that program with a non ATI or NVidia graphics card?

Well, RivaTuner detects the drivers for the video card installed and will pop up telling you it does not support it. But, the worse that could happen if you properly overclock is create artifacts when gaming and have to down the settings. (Don't be cranking up the clock frequencies, unless you want to risk the chance of frying the GPU)

BTW, if you don't have an ATI or NVidia what do you have?

Go into the folder that was just extracted, you will see it in there.

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