No. You overclocking tool is your BIOS.
Never use software to overclock CPU.

You might have to change some sort of configuration file. Have you tried any other games? Are you playing multiplayer or single player?
Post your CPU and GPU usage.

It's about the same to be honest, CPU load doesn't really change between resolutions.

Because he's CPU limited at 1080p he'll also be CPU limited at 720p

CPU load does generally increase the lower the resolution as the amount the GPU can do increase.

It's like the easier way to overclock, however it is much more unreliable and unstable. It places another thing between you ( the overclocker ) and the PC. Think of it like this, if you overclock this way you are going through the program, the program then changes the CPU clock to achieve the overclock. This only occurs when the program is running ( hence the 'open on start up' feature ). It is much more reliable and stable to do the overclock at a hardware level ( bios ) rather than at the software level.

So to sum it up

Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” tongue.gif

But if it's a non "K" CPU you can't change the multiplier... right?

Yeah...i think? Or can you not change it by a little? I'm not sure.
