So I had built my rig about 3 years ago and I don't have any plans for upgrading it any soon. I'm a PC gamer, so I need to run some high end games at least on lowest settings, so I came to the conclusion of overclocking both my GPU and Processor. Any helpp on how to do it?

GPU: Intel HD Graphics 2000/Sandy Bridge

Processor: Intel Core i5 650 @3.20 GHz

Hi, unfortunately you cannot overclock your integrated graphics and overclocking the CPU will have minimal increase in game performances but also you will need a aftermarket CPU cooler if you wanted to overclock since the amount of heat will dramatically increase.

I have never "overclocked" anything because I wory that by doing so It may cause it harm. How safe is it? Luckily when and if I need more power from my pc I am lucky enought to be able to buy 1. I do not game, I run linux so I do not need an i7 or some such.

I am asking just as a FYI.
