Hi there LTT land

 

 I'm trying to decide if I should OC my PC which is by no means weak for my needs, but sometimes I would like a bit more OOMPH from it when playing some games, was easily capable to play some games on ultra just after I bought it but since some upgrades and such crap it cant on default settings at least. I am by no means computer savvy enough that I can do this on my own, I'm to ADHD and visually oriented to go through walls of text and pro jargon about these things. So I'm kinda stuck with asking for help from total strangers which have a bit of time to help out a noob to OC his PC. :$  I have tried to start on my own Downloaded MSI afterburner and Kombuster, TechPowerUp & had Speccy since forever.

 I hope the Screenshot is enough info on the PC to be able to give me some advice to start with. like what to do on these testing thingies to advance and so on and so forth

 

Regards

Goodmann

 

P.S. ADHD made me open 3 windows while making this small post since it looked like something I wanted to check out. . . . OOOOHHHH is that a squirrel?  Runs of for the fourth window :P

 

P.S.S.  So I was googling back and forth since I'm impatient as hell and nobody replies anyways :D and found A POST asking basically the same as I am, seems to  have the same Mobo and CPU if I'm not mistaken. Is the conclusion that some of those replying correct? Is it not advisable to OC this mobo at all? I really would like to know. . .

That board will catch fire. Weak VRMs. A FX6300, sure, but not the 8-cores. If you want extra performance, save up for an upgrade to Ryzen.
