AMD overdrive is for your GPU, it has nothing to do with your CPU. Do you have an aftermarket heatsink? Heat is an issue when overclocking.


yeah i bought an Energex http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835214027

you can raise the turbo boost up 4 bins or 400mhz on locked non "K" cpus like the i5 you have.


^Do this and increase the TDP in the BIOS. That should allow your processor to consistently turbo boost to the max frequency.

Why do you need to overclock in the first place? With that processor and graphics card, that should be more than enough for gaming a very high settings. Are you trying to run a game at the highest possible settings? Are you running a game on multiple monitors?

How much do you think I should increase TDP? I just kept the ratio at 100:100 for Overdrive, and changed the 4 speeds to 37.

Some things won't let me run on very high like crysis 3. I think my CPU is bottlenecking me. Just trying to get the most i can until im able to get a new CPU.

Im looking at this one, people are saying they can overclock it from 4.5 to 5 GHz, and that this is the CPU to have to last for the next decade. This, or that AMD 8 core one (which i guess PS4 and Xbone are using).

Doesn't that game have serious performance issues? Even with very high end PCs, the game doesn't run very good?

No, Crysis 3 is actually extremely well optimized. However, there are several filters that when turned on, will bring even the most powerful systems to their knees. There is no shame in not being able to "max" Crysis 3.

Your not gonna max crysis 3, do your computer & your wallet a favor an just study up on Overclocking before ruining what you have
