Questions about ASUS/Intel

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I could not find a subforum dedicated to ASUS itself, and because my computer is using Intel(R) HD Graphics i5 Core for its display adapter, I was hoping for a few things. My main goal is to ask for help from you guys so that I may learn how to fully utilize the potential my computer has without destroying it as a result of inept overclocking.

NOTE: I am really new to this stuff. Not to computers, perse, just overclocking my computer to squeeze a bit more performance out of it.

So:

GOAL: Determining what comprises my computer, and from there, to learn how to improve its functionality in a manner that will not completely obliterate it.

I apologize if this is not in the right subforum. I believe I will require some advice on where to discover my exact system specs, so that I may provide whoever is kind enough to respond to this thread with the information they need to begin assisting me in overclocking.

Thank you,

isil

Hi, welcome to OCN! The first thing every overclocker needs, is CPUz. Download it, it's a very small program. Then in Windows, set you power plan to "High Performance", start CPUz and post us screenshots of every tab in the program THat should get us going
