Hello
I have a XPS 420 with a HD 5770 XFX overclocked to 900Mhz Core and 1400Mhz Mem, reaches temps of 86c MAX at 80% fan speed with little game improvement,I have a Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 2.33Ghz (unable to overclock CPU due to BIOS being locked at factory) 7GB Ram 64-bit Win 7 having proformance issues even with black ops multiplayer sad to admit do not know how to configure the ATI CCC for best proformance
1:is there any configuration i can use to boost CCC
2:is there a way to unlock the BIOS on a XPS 420
3:if answer to number 2 is no is there another way to overclock CPU

out of interest at what resolution are you gaming at? The HD5770 is enough to max out most games at resolutions like 1440 x 900, but if you are gaming at HD resolutions I would expect black ops to have a low frame rate. Is it only this game that you are having problems with or is it all games?
