Just looking for tips on my setup.

So as the title states I am seeking advice on possible upgrades or any overclocking tuning I can improve on etc. 

My specs and Benchmark stats are below if anyone has advice I'd appreciate it.

Normally I play warzone or Assassins Creed: Valhalla and while I get to play them at great quality, my system still has a lot of room for improvement until I can max settings and get the 144 refresh I was looking for, for now I was able to squeeze about High graphics preset equivalent settings out while getting a constant 80 fps, I got to 90 fps pretty steady after I overclocked.

    This test concerns me only because I tried to enter the BIOS menu to look for this option but I didn't see the option.



    Thank you for your time.

Your CPU is good, it's actually being held back by the GPU. Unfortunately, GPU market is really rough. If you're 1080p gaming, you can look for a RTX 3060TI/RX 6700XT. For 1440p, I would recommend at least a RTX3070.
