Raising the clock frequency of the processor over the one that is installed at the factory of the manufacturer, is called "overclocking" or "overclocking". Overclocking a CPU increases heat dissipation and increases the load on the associated processor elements of the computer, such as RAM. Before overclocking, check that the coolers of the CPU and case provide a sufficient level of cooling. In the case that the temperature of the cores of the processor in a state of "no acceleration" above 50 degrees, increase the frequency without improving the cooling just is contraindicated.
If the cooling is working effectively, start the process of overclocking. Go to the control panel the BIOS of your motherboard to do this, immediately after switching on (rebooting) the computer press F2, DEL or F1, depending on the Board model. In the menu bar the BIOS, find the tab control characteristics of the processor. It can have different names in the manual to the motherboard in the BIOS set up section.
Raise the frequency of the system bus of the processor. In the BIOS this feature is usually called "CPU Clock" or "CPU Frequency". For this purpose in a corresponding row, set the required value.
The clock speed of cores of the processor is the result of multiplying the frequency of the system bus to the multiplier. As a consequence, to overclock the processor by increasing the value of this parameter. But most processors are multiplier locked and cannot be changed. Only CPUx series Black made by AMD and CPU's with the Intel Extreme index from the value of the multiplier can be changed. If your CPU gives the opportunity, raise the multiplier on the options page of the CPU in the BIOS.
Remember that the risk associated with overclocking, rests with you. The processor is damaged as a result of dispersal is not covered by warranty. Try not to increase the CPU frequency more than 20% from the stated manufacturer.
Advice 2: How to increase processor speed
The CPU is the most important element of the computer. From its frequency depends on the speed of the operating system and other elements of the computer. If you think that your CPU is too slow, there are two ways to accelerate the work, either replace the CPU on a newer and more powerful model, or you can try to increase the clock frequency of the processor in software. This process is called Overclocking and is widely used by many PC users.
For starters carefully examine the capabilities of your CPU. Better to do it by reading the description and on the site of the manufacturer. The fact that not all processors are amenable to overclocking, and among those with whom you can carry out this operation, a large part accelerated by 10-15%. This is clearly not enough to see the acceleration in the system.
Download and install ClockGen. This utility is especially created to modify the settings of the CPU in the Windows operating system environment. With this program you can increase the clock frequency of the processorwithout having to configure the BIOS.
If you increase the frequency of the processor is not enough, you have to resort to the setup in the BIOS. When you start the computer press Del. Once you get in the BIOS press Ctrl+F1. Depending on the manufacturer of the motherboard, configure CPU in BIOS can be in different sub-menus. Usually, this items: CPU, Advanced or Advanced Chipset Features. The overall frequency of the processor is obtained by multiplying the index multiplier to index the standard frequency. These settings should increase gradually, rebooting the PC after each change. Periodically increase the voltage supplied to the CPU, because the work at a higher frequency requires more voltage.
Make sure the cooler and the integrity of thermal paste.
Advice 3: What is processor frequency
When selecting your computer and its components usually pay attention to the following features: power graphics card, RAM and hard drive, and also the frequency of the processor. The latter is one of the key parameters from which depends the entire computer.
The CPU (Central processing unit or CPU) is an electronic unit or chip which executes machine instructions (codes) is the main part of the computer hardware or programmable logic controller. Sometimes it is also called the processor or microprocessor. One of its main characteristics is the clock frequency. It depends on the speed and time of Response of the device. Accordingly, the larger the value of frequency (from 900 to 3800 MHz), the faster the whole computer. Clock frequency represents the number of cycles (operations) that can perform in a second processor. It is proportional to the frequency of the bus. As a rule, the value of the clock frequency of the processor depends directly on its performance. But this statement is appropriate only for models in one line, because the performance of CPU is influenced also by other parameters such as cache size second level, the frequency and availability of cache in the third level, special instructions and so on. The clock frequency can also be defined as the frequency of the clock synchronizing circuit. which are input to the system from outside in one second. This parameter characterizes the performance of the subsystem, that is, the total number of operations performed per second. Of course, this value depends on many things, as it directly affects the performance of your computer. But you need to understand what different processors have their own features, advantages and disadvantages at the same core frequency. Moreover, interface units of the processor working with a clock frequency of the motherboard, and this value may be much lower than the frequency of the processor. Also stated the value of frequency is not always really reflect the true picture, because sometimes manufacturers specify a higher frequency, which belongs to the same processor.
