I want to overclock.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Sorry if this is the wrong section. My gaming PC is less than 4 months old, today I downloaded BF1 Beta, I get a good 110-140 FPS, it seems to drop and go up a lot. I have a 144hz monitor so I want to keep it above 140 FPS if possible.

I want to overclock to get more FPS, I have no experience whatsoever. I've searched videos and guides but it doesn't hel pme much. I downlaodded MSI Afterburner and stuff but I didn't change any sliders yet I'm afraid I'll break something.
These are my current specs, can someone help me out?

here is the issue, for a 144Hz monitor, you need to maintain at least 144 to get it to look fluid and keep steady, you may want to check into dumbing it down to 120Hz or somewhere and adjust your video settings. OCing with your stuff wouldn't be the issue of your frame rates, I was just talking to my buddies about this on TS last night about BF1 lol

So if your system can do a steady, say 100fps, you're saying on a 144hz monitor it'll lag?

So I should lower my monitors refresh rate to 120? What difference would that make? I mean, its currently on 144hz, if I lower it now to 120 and play BF1 again, will I notice anything?
