Need help overclocking AMD Athlon II X2 250 64-bit processor

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My current CPU's speed is not up to par to meet some system reqs of games i have, ive been searching on how to overclock mine but have not been able to find a forum or website giving details.

My Specs:

CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 250
MoBo: ASRock N68C-S UCC
BIOS: Default System BIOS
RAM: 8 GB
HDD: ST375052 8AS SCSI Disk Device
Sound Card: (1) VIA High Definition Audio
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

When i load up my BIOS, there is a tab dedicated to overclocking but i don't know how to use it would i just select the speed i like or is there a limit that this processor can go to?

I would say thats more a bottleneck than anything else in your computer. Even when that card launched, it was considered a super low end card that was hardly suitable for gaming.
