Overclocking CPU With any Windows
How to overclock the CPU
We know, who came to this article in the hope of a quick and easy guide to overclocking your processor. But before learning how to overclock the CPU, there are some basic principles to get your head around.
The first is heat. Inevitably, the higher voltage components, the more heat will happen the component is added.
Second, more clock speed is trying to achieve, more tension is needed to nourish the attempt. It makes a lot of sense.
And third, there is only so much stress from your PC can take before you start to see the harmful effects. These could be a drop in frame rate for the GPU, CPU processes corrupting or even a failure at all.
It is essentially the basic limits of overclocking. All chips are created equal, but some are more equal than others. Often we hear overclockers “Lottery silicon.” In short, it has to do with the manufacturing process with each processor.
Small imperfections in the application of silicon advantage to a variation of how the chips fulfill both the stability with an increase in voltage and the amount of heat produced max. You can get lucky with yours, or maybe not.
It can be likened everywhere between 0.2GHz frequency difference, in some cases, up to 1 GHz in overclocking potential.
Therefore, we will assume that you have a secondary market of the refrigerator of some sort (see “Choosing a refrigerator” section), which has a processor or component that is capable of overclocking (K / X Series for any Intel AMD) chip, and understand how to enter BIOS, here’s how to get there.
1. Check CPU stability
To ensure successful overclock, we know that the CPU is stable both at rest and maximum load. To do this, we use a free software program called Prime95.
You also want to download a program to precisely control the temperature of the CPU sends. To do this, we will use Core Temp, because it works with both AMD and Intel cores.
There are alternatives out there – and Corsair NZXT have proprietary software that works with its products, and most motherboards have the power for temperature control that can be used from the desktop.
Finally, if you prefer not to install the program, then the Real Temp GT is for you.
2. To check the core temperature
Once these programs are removed or installed, download Core Temp to begin to control the temperature of your CPU.
Always look at the lower temperature core to have a good understanding of how hot the CPU is running.
3. Run stress tests
Now we will want to compare your CPU in action, to see how hot it works 100%.
Prime95 start, select “Just stress testing” and then gave a list of options for the stress tests would achieve.
Select “Test mix”, and click “OK”.
4. Enter the BIOS
After about 5 to 10 minutes, once the temperatures have stabilized between Prime95. Select “test” on the top bar and press “Stop” and restart your PC and type as the elimination of the keyboard keys to enter the BIOS.
(Be sure to pay attention to the login screen when the key sequence to access the BIOS tends to differ between device vendors.)
In this test, we use an ASRock Z97 Extreme motherboard 4. Therefore, UEFI is perhaps a little different than other manufacturers are there, but the basic parameters will be essentially the same.

5. Go for auto-overclocking
Once in the BIOS, look for the overclocking tab. In ours, it is called “OC Tweaker”. Once inside, you have several options.
The best way to overclock the CPU way is to let the motherboard do most of the work.
Most manufacturers include overclocking profiles, usually from 4 GHz to 4.8 GHz depending on the CPU installed.
Setting the motherboard to run one of these profiles allow you to try to overclock the chip at that frequency, without user intervention.
This can be a quick fix, especially if you’re just checking in a conservative overclock (3.5 GHz to 4 GHz, for example), but it is not suitable if you want to go beyond this barrier 4.8 GHz, or if you can “t reach this frequency through automated profiles.
6. Change the multiplier
the most experienced users will find the manual control much of it true overclocking. Basically, you want to change the ratio of the CPU, or multiplier for all samples to the destination number you want to reach.
This is 35 in this case.
The multiplier then works with cores BCLK “(or” core clock “) frequency (usually 100) to create the final figure of 3.5 GHz. In this tutorial we will try to overclock our CPU, just to start, 3, 5 to 4 GHz by simply changing the multiplier.

7. Try max
Once you have changed the ratio of CPU multiplier to 40, save changes and exit the BIOS. Start Windows, open Core Temp to monitor CPU temperature, and open Prime95 and select “Options”, “torture test” and finally “mixed test” to see how your chips lounge with max.
If stable for at least five minutes, we can start the multiplier to achieve a higher overclock.
8. Find the limit
At this stage of the overclocking, you will increase the multiplier by one and repeat the stress test Windows each time, until you reach the point where, initially, is to get a blue screen death or the heat from the processor begins to accelerate.
Ideally, you want the blue screen before it reaches its thermal limit.
9. Increased tension
To overcome the problem of a blue screen, we need to start working with the Vcore voltage. Back in the BIOS, you want to find the voltage CPU core mode.
Change this “fixed”. At this point, you may need to do research on what action takes CPU Vcore, and what people intend to overclock.
You’ll want to start increasing the voltage to 0.01 volts each time until you can start properly, stress test and maintain stability in its target frequency.
Once you get a little more comfortable overclocking, you have increased tensions 0.05 or 0.1 will in a moment. There is more to learn how the CPU responds to different amounts of stress at this stage.
Eventually, you reach a point where you can not reach the next frequency, regardless of the amount of stress that you initiate. This is when you want to dial back your overclock of 0.1GHz and drop the Vcore voltage to the last stable configuration for that frequency, and keep it there because this is your final overclock.
10. Back to benchmarking
To ensure a stable overclock should reference point for all the time it seems appropriate now. This can be from one hour to a full day, depending on how the patient is.
Finally, you can enjoy your machine to its full potential.
