Advice on overclocking. Tags: CPUs Overclocking Performance Jeremy Christian January 17, 2013 5:28:25 PM HI! I like to play games a lot, and I'm thinking about overclocking to up my system's performance, but I don't know a lot about the relative improvements overclocking would bring to my PC. Currently I'm using a stock cooler for my intel i7 920, and neither my CPU or GPU (Radeon 5770) are overclocked whatsoever. If I were to begin overclocking my CPU, would I need a higher grade cooling solution, and what kind of performance increase could I expect? Thanks for any help you give Sorry if this a silly question! More about : advice overclocking Can't find your answer ? Ask !
