Hello Guys,

 

I'm looking to overclock my PC even though a little bit to see how much performance more I can get from this hardware. 

 

Below you can find the hardware i have:

 

Operating System: Windows Home x64

 

CPU: Intel Core i5-6500 CPU @ 3.20GHz  . With a Hyper 212 EVO for cooling.

GPU:  GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

RAM: 16,0GB Dual-Channel Unknown @ 1064MHz (15-15-15-36)

Motherboard:

What do you recommend me starting with? i have never done OC on any of my PCs and don't want to break it since is the only one i have, so that's why i came to the LTT forums since i have been following this channel for years now.

 

Thanks a lot in advance

You aren't going to do any overclocking because you have a CPU with a locked multiplier and a motherboard which does not support overclocking.

Thanks for your quick response.

 

That's is what i tough but, i have read that even not being a K processor there were ways to do so like flashing a BIOS to the Motherboard.

 

If it is completely impossible, is there a way to increase the performance by touching voltages or anything like that?

No not really. Even if you find a custom bios or anything like that I would discourage you from flashing it.

The MotherBoard costs 99€, do you think its worth to change it?

Not without a K sku processor.

You CANNOT overclock your CPU. It is IMPOSSIBLE. You do not have a “K” next to the i5 6500 meaning you are not able to even if you got a motherboard that supports overclocking. If you really want to overlock, you can overclock your GPU!

Hello laushik,

 

is there a way to know if it my system has a bottleneck? i mean, just to see if the CPU can handle the GPU OC?

 

Thanks a lot.
