Would Overclocking solve my FPS issue?

Hi,

So before I start here are my PC specs:

Bitfenix Raider Case
i5-3570k (Stock fan)
Sapphire HD 7850 OC edition
8gb Ram
650w psu

So basically I can max out a lot of games and there is some which I can't. Hopefully soon though I wish to upgrade my 7850 to either a Asus GTX 770 or a EVGA GTX 770.

Reason why I wanted to know if overclocking would improve my FPS was because I was messing around with Skyrim and wanted to try out my first ENB mod and I gave that a try and i got significant FPS drops. In vanilla Skyrim I would be able to run 60+ fps but when I enable ENB I would get 35-50 (Which is okay but I want to see if I can alot better) Not to mention but it would stutter like crazy when really under stress (By the way, I'm not talking about skyrim's regular stutter issues, I managed to fix them)

Now I do realize that I am uncapable to overclock because I am using the stock fan but If I were to upgrade to a CoolerMaster Hyper 212 evo would it cool down my CPU enough for hardcore gaming as well as being enough for overclocking in result dramatically increasing my FPS? (With the HD 7850) and would it still be good when I change to a GTX 770? http://www.techbuy.com.au/p/181758/COOLING_CPU_FANS/Coo...

This is sort of a multi thread but I think this mainly goes under overclocking.

Thank you :) .

212 EVO will work great, have one on both my 2500K @ 4.8 and my 3570K @ 4.7 - until you get it, can OC on the stock fan - simply raise the CPU multiplier to 39 and see how it goes - prob won't even need voltage adjustments - monitor your CPU temps with a utility called CoreTemp

Awesome, thanks for the quick reply :) ! But do you think this would increase my framerate on my games? What would be the major differences if I were to OC?

Sorry about the newbie questions.

It will raise it some yes, how much will depend on the rest of the rig, but that speeds up the CPU and provides a faster feed to the GPU
