My custom built desktop computer is almost 3 years old now, and believe it or not, I can feel the "Moore's law" coming in effect on my CPU. While it still performs extremely well, sometimes when I play games (like Guild Wars 2, Battlefield 4) and I have other programs such as Google Chrome or Netbeans open, my CPU will stack at 100% and I really don't feel safe with it running like that. So I thought that maybe overclocking it a bit would help it stay in the 85-90% CPU usage range so I can feel safer. I've never done overclocking and barely know anything about it. I plan on looking for guides and tutorials on how to proceed by myself (if there's one thing I can do, it's research), but I would like if members that have experience with overclocking can give me tips and tricks or even advice. The kind of things you know from experience and that aren't always in the guides and tutorials. Also, if you have guides and tutorials on overclocking, feel free to post them and I'll take a look at all of them. I'll start my search on Overclock.net and go from there.
I guess you guys need to know what hardware I have, so I'll post you a PCPartPicker build of my desktop when I get home in a few hours.
Thank you in advance to everyone who posts in this thread to assist me
