What is Overclocking?
Overclocking your unlocked Intel® Core™ processor, RAM, and motherboard is a way to custom tune your PC. You can adjust the power, voltage, core, memory settings, and other key system values for ultimate performance. It speeds up your components—and your gameplay. It can also help with processor-intensive tasks such as image rendering and transcoding.1 2
