Can i use MSI Afterburner to help with my bad gpu.

Hello, I have a kind of strange build, I have a I9-9900KF CPU With a 1050Ti as a GPU, there is obvious bottleneck
My question is, can i use MSI Afterburner to lower the bottleneck and perhaps maybe make it so they work better together.
I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, I just have never before used MSI Afterburner, so I'm not familiar with it's powers.

You can use MSI Afterburner to overclock your graphics card, which should help it perform better. The uplift won't be enormous, but if you lucked out with a card that overclocks well, you might see a 10% boost in FPS in some games depending on what kind of clockspeeds you can hit on the core and memory.

Thank you for the feedback.

AfterBurner is for overclocking. You might see a small uplift in performance by overclocking it a little bit, but it won't be a game changer. The only and best way to remove the GPU bottleneck is to upgrade to a better GPU.

 

A bottleneck is always relative. Does it perform to your satisfaction? If so, then although there is technically a bottleneck it matters much less. If not, then it's time to start saving up for a new one.

 

Not sure what the PC was built to do, but seeing how it's an "F" CPU that is probably the reason it's a mere 1050 Ti. Those don't come with an iGPU and you need a GPU for display output. The builder (if bought new) seems to have had a CPU-intensive task in mind above all.

If you want more ocing headroom you could screw around with bios and voltmodding though that can actually destroy your card if you arent careful

Yea sure you can overclock it for some performance increase, but it won't be noticeable in many cases

 

I personally wouldn't recommend it sure to the (albeit very small) risk involved, but if you practice cautious when overclocking then it'll definitely be helpful, somewhat

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.
