Would like help boosting game performance by "overclocking"

378 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  crjdriver
I was poking around on the internet and I discovered something called overclocking the cpu to boost game performance. I'd like to do that but I am not too tech savvy and I'd hate to brick the computer i just bought by messing with stuff I don't understand. Any help would be appreciated. Here's what computer I use

Acer nitro 5 AN515-43

AMD Ryzen 5 3550H with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx 2.10 GHz (I just read what was on the specs thing in my PC, forgive me if i sound dumb.)

If you are not tech savvy then it is best not to overclock. We at the forum can only point to general overclocking guides available on the net. It still requires trial and error effort from you. Thus we can't say "set this to X and set that to Y" because it is not guarrenteed to work. The entire situation rests on you. Hint, find Documents, not videos; videos make everything seem easy when it is not. Here's one document:

First of all, you need to understand a few things;
1 THERE IS NO SAFE OVERCLOCK. All overclocking entails some degree of risk and [generally] voids any warranty
2 Big box systems ie dell, hp, acer, whatever do not have the necessary options/settings in the bios AND almost always big box systems do not have the heavy duty components necessary for a successful overclock

While it is technically possible to overclock your laptop using software, [IMO] software overclocking is less than useless. If you really, really want to try overclocking, your only option would be to use something like ryzen master. Again be sure you understand the first point above.
