Need help with overclocking

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello, Im trying to get into overclocking my CPU, with newer games coming out as well as games that have already came out, my CPU needs a little kick to keep up just until im able to upgrade.

Right now my computer specs are :

Intel i7 930 (Clocked at 2.8 GHz) with some big chuck of metal air cooler, sorry i dont know the name of it.

Geforce GTX 770

6GB of Patriot RAM

X58 Pro E (?) Motherboard

Antec 650w PSU

First thing is, is overclocking an option? Will i able to get to atleast 3 GHz or higher without my computer pooping itself?

Also, i dunno if this is normal but the fan on the CPU cooler seems to be running a little slow.

This build, (scratch the GPU which i bought about a year ago) is about 4 or so years old, it hasnt failed me until just recently where games like Batman arkham knight and The Division are getting crazy FPS drops and stuff that makes it just unplayable. I also want to be able to play the new Battlefield coming this October. So im hoping overclocking will keep up just until I can upgrade.

With all that aside, where do I start?

Thanks ahead of time to anyone who helps. Ill take as much info as I can get
