Overclocking - GIGABYTE - is it possible?

Hi friend,

I do not have such background in Overclocking, I would be happy to help you in FINE TUNING to motherboard and CPU if possible.

I want to improve performance on my computer for a while until I buy a new computer in the coming months.

Do not know where to start, and what needs to be done but is my specification ... and also CPUID snapshots (if relevant ...)


In the chassis itself - there is a fan on the processor and one fan on the front side of the chassis below.


The current specification:

Operating System: Windows 10 - x64bit

CPU: Intel Core i5-4690 @ 3.5Ghz

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z97-HD3
Ram: DDR3 / SDRAM 2x4 - upgraded to 2x8 Ripjos (next week)
Storage: SSD 500GB + 2TB
Video Card: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 760 - 4096 MBytes of GDDR5


It is important to note that this is a daily work computer

Most of the work is in PHOTOSHOP and ILLUSTRATOR with some video edits

Lots of tasks at the same time whether it's open projects, browsers, email etc.

In order to perform OC you need support from the processor and the chipset, in your case only the chipset (Z97) supports and the processor does not (need a processor with open multiplier, for example i5 4690K), so you can not perform OC.

You can basically change the base speed, actually up to 103 105 and this often causes instability in short is not recommended.

You can change the product to 39 for all cores.

According to the values ​​at the moment it will give an effort improvement of 2%.
