Could my cpu not be overclocked cause this much bad performance

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So, the specs in my sig, are the ones that I am currently using. I play older games on this computer, and what I am wondering is, ma by because my CPU is only clocked at 2.66ghz is this slowing down my performance in older games, Like Cod 4 and, Waw. Do thees e games not support quad core's so they need faster speeds?

I don't think that processor would bottleneck you in any of those games. And usually they do need faster speeds than they would if they supported quad cores.

I am getting around 40 fps in those games, I really want to overclock, but I lost the jumper for my motherboard so I cannot access the overclock settings in the bios. Is there a way I can do it in windows?

When was the last time you did a fresh OS install?

as older installs can get a little bogged down.

I will do a fresh install now, would it be a bad idea to put my steam app fold aside or, do a complete fresh install.

Yeah you can backup all your docs and apps etc and then put them back once done.
