AMD FX-4300 Black Edition OC Question (more of a general question though)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I recently OCed my XFX Radeon 6670 to get a bit more fps in games. While I am satisfied with the results, I am wondering if I could get a bit more from overclocking my CPU. Or would the only way to be certain is to just do it? (and is it the same as overclocking a GPU?)

Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance.

Of course CPU helps as well

To overclock your CPU you're going to have to enter your motherboards BIOS.

If you can do that, and find overclock settings, you're golden.

Maybe list what parts you have? If you can find overcock settings find out what your multiplier is. You can probably jump that up 2 without having to change voltages or anything crazy
