Most of the people are not satisfied with the performance and speed of their CPU and GPU. It is not necessary that the CPU you bought is not the latest version, but the technology is changing quickly, and now in every week new processor with more power is launched so, you can’t be blamed for being not satisfied with CPU’s performance. For the solution of the problem, there is one method called overclocking which enhances the power of CPU and GPU to meet the graphical requirement of your work.
However, there are two sides of the coin. Overclocking will definitely increase the performance of your CPU, but it also has tremendous after effects. More performance means more heating and pressure on your chip which can result in big time damage and crashes. So overclock your CPU or GPU up to a certain margin only, up to requirements only, crossing it can be a big problem. So, please be careful about it.
So team of Tryoweb have listed some of the best overclocking softwares which are perfect for this purpose and which will create minor damage to your CPU as compared to other counterparts. There are eight best overclocking software in the list. Recently, I have also shared steps to get iMessage on your PC.
Top 8 Best OverClocking Softwares 2017
1. AMD Overdrive –
AMD Overdrive is one of the most popular and trusted tools to overclock your CPU. It works even better if you own an AMD chipset. As far the interface is concerned its phenomenal with a very simple interface to understand. So resulting preferable for beginners and the high-end features can be compatible for the experts. It consists simple sliding interface to do all the all the overclocking stuff. For heating issues, you can increase the speed of the fan to keep your CPU always cool at the time of overclocking. As I told earlier that with AMD chipset it works great but don’t have it don’t worry it will still work well.
2. MSI AfterBurner –
MSI AfterBurner is another great overclocking software for overclocking your CPU. The tool has quite similar features to AMD overdrive but with an enhancement. By AfterBurner you can’t just increase the speed of your CPU fan but it also lets you control the variations of the speed, like AMD Overdrive it also works with sliders to control everything. It also provides clear statistics of the conditions of your CPU all on your computer screen. There five configuration settings in total. You can set the overclocking of your CPU as per your needs by those configuration settings.
3. CPU-Z and GPU-Z –
CPU-Z and GPU-Z are not overclocking tools, but they can provide some very useful information about the CPU conditions which are very crucial at times. Information such as fan speed, system speed, voltage, heating, and cooling are easily accessible. The App doesn’t overclock CPU itself, that you have to do using any other overclocking tool along with CPU-Z and GPU-Z, but still, the statistics and information it provides can be very handy to you to save you CPU from unexpected crashes.
4. Intel Desktop Control Center –
As the name suggests, the tool is particularly made fro Intel users same as it was with AMD. The tool can come really handy for Intel users. It is not complex as other tools but still provides valuable information and control related to CPU speed, memory, heating, and cooling.
5. RivaTuner –
RivaTuner can be always a interesting choice for overclocking software because it is the oldest overclocking software active even today. The features of the tools are quite impressive, it lets you controls the fan speed, speed of GPU, memory, and shader. As it is old the interface is quite simple. The tool can easily overclock ATI, AMD and nvidea GPUs. The size of the tool is also very low as compared to other tools available on the internet. It is sized just 2.7 MB. The tool can be really helpful for people with very old CPUs. IF you’re not able to overclock from any other tool, then Rivatuner can simply work as a blessing for you.
6. SetFSB –
SetFSB is a very advanced overclocking software, and it is not for beginners at all. It has the ability to overclock your CPU to a substantial margin, but you should use only use this Application when you have complete knowledge about your motherboard and clock generator, or you can end up with having big crashes in your CPU. SetFSB has been updated to support PLL model.
7. EVGA Precision X –
EVGA precision is one of the best overclocking softwares. The tool has ten different configuration overclocking settings. The user interface of the tool is very simple and easy to understand and use. Using this Application you can control on GPU clock, memory clock, setting fan profiles and voltage.
8. ASUS GPU Tweak –
ASUS GPU Tweak is overclocking tool officially made by ASUS. The interface consists of slider bars from which you will get the whole control on the system. For example – core clock, memory clock, core voltage, fan speed and a unique diagnostic graph. BIOS updates can be also checked in the software. It is already installed with built in GPU-Z software you can have detailed information about the performance and the efficiency of your CPU and GPU.
Final Verdict –
At last, this is for sure that the article has cemented some kind of curiosity in your mind related to overclocking. I will like to say that overclocking is a method which is not very easy to get mastered. It takes time to understand the conditions of your CPU, GPU and motherboard to use the overclocking software entirely, so you mistakenly don’t harm your CPU.
Start with tools for beginners and slowly switch to the complex one’s. By the time you will have some useful knowledge about your CPU, and it’s components which will be helpful to you to use the overclocking tools for your own good.
So, thus were my views and ideas on overclocking of CPU and GPU. If you’ve got any suggestions and questions, then you are welcomed to comment them in the comment section.
