Advice 1: How to overclock an integrated video card

Achieving lower costs, manufacturers are deprived of a video card own the printed circuit Board and integrated it into the motherboard. This allowed us to remove individual memory and own chip. Instead, the resources are redeployed memory is the North bridge of the motherboard. But all this has made overclocking these cards difficult. This is due to the difficulty of providing a cooling of the North bridge, the need to overclock the RAM. Thus, the overclocking of the integrated graphics card is reduced to optimizing performance.
How to overclock an integrated video card
You will need
  • a computer motherboard with an integrated graphics card.
Increase the amount of RAM. Replace the memory module with larger capacity or install additional straps to avoid reallocation of memory between the computer and the video card to the detriment of the latter.
To increase the processing speed of video games, will have to compromise on quality. Adjust settings: lower the texture quality and screen resolution, disable antialiasing and other resource-dependent functions.
Watch for the new drivers and firmware on the website of the manufacturer of the motherboard. Download and install updated drivers often yields performance gains through optimization of interaction between the operating system and device drivers.
Overclocking the CPU and RAM of your computer will allow you to increase graphics performance. Increased as a result of overclocking the CPU core frequency and system bus leads to lower timing memory. Keep out of the spotlight while conducting the disperse state of the system and the need for additional cooling. The North bridge when overclocking the integrated graphics card gets pretty warm, and you have to spend extra on a good cooling system to avoid output of the motherboard failure.
The increase in voltage also leads to serious damage. Therefore, in the process of dispersal closely monitor the state of the system. All changes should be done gradually, when testing the system state at each stage.
Some manufacturers leave open the possibility of overclocking the integrated graphics via the BIOS settings of the motherboard. These settings are very different and depend on the model. The specs on your motherboard you can find their detailed description either look for the manual on the manufacturer's website.

Advice 2: How to disable integrated graphics card

If you install an additional video card instead of integrated devices there is a need to disable the integrated video card. In most cases, you will need to configure the BIOS, which can be performed without the involvement of specialists.
How to disable integrated graphics card
After installing a new graphics card into the appropriate slot of the motherboard, turn on the computer. It is not excluded that the new device will be automatically activated, and a built-in adapter disabled. To check which graphics card is active, go to the Windows control panel. Under "display Adapters" dialog box "device Manager" will be displayed and the video card running at the moment.
If the device is an integrated video adapter that is not disabled automatically, restart the computer and after turning it on hold down the Delete key (Del) to enter BIOS menu. On some computers the access control of the underlying operating system occurs after pressing one of the function keys (F2-F10). The desired key can be determined by trial and error or to clarify the information in the user manual of the motherboard, and if you have a portable device – in the user manual.
In the BIOS, find the section Integrated (or Оnboard) Video (integrated video card) in menu Integrated Peripherals. Disconnect the device by selecting Off instead of On, or Disabled instead of Enabled. Complete the BIOS by pressing F10 key (Save and exit). After loading Windows, open "device Manager" and check the changes made in the settings of the adapters.
On some motherboards to force disable the integrated devices (sound, video), you must switch the so-called jumpers. Their location should be specified in the instructions to the motherboard. Improper installation of the jumpers may lead to the impossibility of turning on the computer, so do not attempt to move the jumpers at random.
Useful advice
Installing a new graphics card, don't forget to connect the VGA cable.
