    Whats the best way to overclock the CPU?


    Hi, I would like to overclock my CPU but I dont know what to do. Is their anything like MSI Afterburner but for CPUs. You can see what CPU I have in my System Spec.

    I suggest you read the manual for your Mother Board

    Hes basically saying do your research first. You can OC in different ways. I take it from how you asked in your OP and responding with what do you mean when someone replied BIOS that you need to read up on this stuff first. PC's are different than Phones. People buy phones to expect to buy another phone in 6 months to a year. PC's live longer. PC manufacturers clock the cpu/voltage for longetivity. Which is how people are running 5 year old systems happily. Regardless of how you do it, things are gonna heat up and heat slowly kills. I'm a power user whether its a pc or a android. My current pc doesn't allow an exchange of cpu if I needed a new one because mine is built into the motherboard.

    BCLK Overclocking is related to your motherboard. It basically clocks everything not just cpu. It would even overclock the wireless card.

    Multiplier overclocking - Increasing vcore (Your pumping more volts into it)

    These are basic examples and by no means scientific definitions for computer gurus.

    Intel has a app available for download. Intell Xtreme Tuning. AMD has one also. Their are some other apps tweaks. I can assure you things are going to be as simple as click this and that and be done with it. You need to monitor the system. Probaly better off running a cpu stress test for like 2 hours straight or something.

    FYI - Your cpu is the strongest part of your computer setup. SSD would be on my list first on your custom cpu. I would leave it alone unless you do your homework first.

    I didn't mean to sound rude, but you really to to research it before OCing

    from OP spec
    CPU Intel Core i3 2120 @ 3.30GHz

    doesn't the chip have to be a K version for o/c ? AFAIK the only way to o/c a non-K cpu is to raise bclock - might give about 4% if lucky. Hardly worth it.

    This is a correct answer. With non "K" version of CPU, the multiplier is locked so you cannot change it. Changing the BCLOCK, also known as FSB is not worth it and might cause your PC to be unstable/BSOD.

    Your case problems.

    1) You don't know what to do, so that means you can either brick the CPU or suicide the computer

    2) Your CPU are not the K series that design for overclock.
