Can you expand what you are trying to do? 


Are you looking to upgrade the PC components? What are you using the PC for?

Assuming you're not looking for upgrade tips, the best way to maximize performance is make sure background tasks aren't stealing power from your games, turn down settings as much as possible and target playing older games to begin with, and overclock the GPU.

Assuming you are set with your current hardware, there's little you can do to improve performance. I doubt you spent extra on an overclocking board for a mere first gen i5, but if you did, that's the obvious first choice. Overclocking the graphics card won't get you anywhere in this case, it's gonna be drawing more frames than your CPU can push out.


If you wanted some suggestions to expand, there are of course cheap Xeons for your socket.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B


Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.
