overclocking will give you another 10fps in games.
is your HD5450 the passive version (no fan) ?
if its passive, better stick a fan on the heatsink with some doublesided tape before you start overclocking.

Hi edalbkrad,

It has only a heatsink...
So I need to buy a fan first?

Or just a better graphics card...? rolleyes.gif
Note: I don't have money for a new graphics card... frown.gif

honestly a new card would be best. But since your finances are tight OC that 5450 will do for now. Even at best the 5450 will pale greatly in comparison to some newer cards. You could always look for 6xxx series. Many of those will OC better and be a conciderable upgrade.

But if you are indeed stuck with the 5450 at the moment, OCing will get you a bit more performance and get you a few more miles.

Oh and any fan can work. You should see a few of mine I use. Got a couple of CPU fans, they are really strong. A few fans from dead power supplies and other components.

You can wire them in to your power supply leads. There are 4 wires a red , 2 black , and 1 yellow. The red is 5V and the Yellow is 12V I think, may have them reversed. Any way, you should try out both to see which would work best. A PSU fan on 12 volts is loud and pushes a lot, maybe more than you need, of air, so 5V works better. Just plug your ground wire from fan, usually black, in to one of the black wire slots. Then test the red and white slot with your fans positive wire, usually white or red but many colors are used. Don't worry, the power usage of fans is so low they wont likely blow anything. just be careful not TO TOUCH ANY WIRES TOGETHER while the computer is on, you will mostly BLOW UP your PSU.

Like OCing, just take your time. And if your not comfortable doing this, you may not need to anyway. It will just limit what your max clock would be.

Have fun and enjoy that you are in control of what your machine can do.

For as long as you need. We have been there. Whether it be hanging on to old equipment because we don't quite have the money to upgrade or just needing GOOD info so we can take pride in the fact that we made our computers faster and better.

Ok redid everything on my Gf computer. Oc that little 5450 to the max it would allow with official overclock to 845core 695 memory. Granted it still pales greatly in comparison to the card I have now but that is one impressive piece of crap.
