First time overclocker completely lost :( Help!! :( MS 7577

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello guys! My name is Maddi and I am trying to make my system faster for all the new games coming out! biggrin.gif I want to be able to play SWTOR, Guild Wars 2, Battlefield 3, MW3, Skyrim, etc on Ultra settings! I've been doing a little research and I found (Please correct me if I am wrong) that my graphics card is pretty good but that my processor needs a little work. So I thought of trying to overclock it but I came to find out that it is an extremely hard and risky thing to do! I really need your help in this process! I need to know two things

HOW TO OVERCLOCK

and

WHAT SETTINGS/BUILD to overclock at

My system is the following:

System Manufacturer: MICRO-STAR INTERNATIONAL CO.,LTD

Please help me do this! Thank you so much for your time and patience! Have a nice day! Maddi

Is your CPU a Black Edition? It makes for much easier overclocking. If it is, you can just OC with the multiplier for now, just dont increase the voltage!!!

Other great places to learn:
