Overclocking a Premium Dual Core CPU E5300 @2.6GHz and need help/advice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Sorry! Pentium not Premium!*

Hi guys, before I go into my system specs, I'd first like to mention WHY I wish to overclock in the first place.

I like making youtube videos for games, and doing so requires me to run several programs at once (Actual game, game-recording programs, and Facecam recording program)
and doing so takes a toll on my FPS while in game.

My first question would be if overclocking would help with the issue I'm facing and whether or not it's worth doing.

Also, I can run the games just fine on their own. I have a pretty nice graphics card, so there isn't a problem there.

Hello! Overclocking should help a little bit with the problem you are having, but honestly you won't feel that much of a performance boost unless you do a really big overclock. Your CPU is only a dual core, so that is the big thing holding you back from running multiple programs without a performance drop.

Overclocking would help;Premium you say?! drool.gif hmm.. PM me.
I'm sure I could set you up with something much more powerful for 0 dollars biggrin.gifsneaky.gif
Overclocking the RAM would help, too.
