Overclocking is an art that is constantly evolving even though it’s been around for quite some time now, for Intel and AMD processors.
This process came about because computer users wanted to get the very best performance out of each component in their systems, so overclocking stepped in as the savior, and is now one of the most popular ways of getting computers to fire on all cylinders.
Previously, you would have to replace motherboard jumpers if you wanted to access some front side bus frequencies, but modern motherboards can actually generate frequencies in more numbers from the BIOS without changing the other components’ speeds.
This also means that you need not do it through the BIOS setup because there exists the best overclocking software for AMD CPU to handle it for you.
Check out some of the best overclocking software for AMD CPU available now that can help you get the best performance from even the smallest of elements in your system.
It features an intuitive and modern interface, plus easy accessibility for different users from novices to pros. It is the equivalent of nTune by NVidia, which monitors motherboards that use its CPUs.
This program only works with AMD chipsets and processors, but you can overclock your AMD CPU with granular control, and it adjusts memory, HT performance and voltages, with full control and better performance.
With one-click tuning options via a simple slider, you can get ready and pre-tuned memory profiles and tweak overall performance, plus manually tweak frequency, timing and voltage.
Gamers also get all the horsepower they need for complex games.
You can also store and create unlimited profiles, so this is the only software you need for an AMD CPU.
AMD Ryzen Master Utility
It gives you complete control over the new Ryzen chips, and lets you push your AMD CPU to the edge of its potential performance.
If you want to rev up your voltage, clock speeds, or monitor temperatures or even disable some chip cores, this software makes that happen, plus some.
It almost directly replaces AMD Overdrive app, but only works with the new AM4 motherboards and Windows 10 OS, so users of older AMD processors still need AMD Overdrive.
Ryzen processor is multiplier-unlocked so you can personalize the performance based on your preferences and tastes, plus you get up to four profiles to store your custom adjustments on clocks and voltage, for the CPU and DDR4 memory, while parking cores and adjusting memory timings as well.
It also covers you with real time monitoring, and a histogram of per-core clock rates and temperature, as well as average and peak readings, because accurate hardware status updates are vital.
EVGA PRECISION X
In fact, it has become a must have for gamers who want to push their gaming laptop or rig to their potential.
However, it only works with NVidia graphics cards, but to use it you need to install the GeForce GTX TITAN, 900, 700 or 600.
You can change the clock offset on your GPU, and the memory clock offset, plus you can overclock your refresh rate with up to 10 single overclocking setups, and switch between them at will, seamlessly.
It is free so it has an easy to navigate interface that won’t bog you down with many options or utilities, and as much as it is simple, it is ideal if you want to squeeze out better overall clock speeds from your machine.
The GPU-Z is a lightweight system utility that is designed to provide important information on your video or graphics card and processor, and it is used all over the world.
Features include support for NVidia, AMD, ATI and Intel graphics devices, displays adapter and GPU information, displays overclock/default clocks and 3D clocks wherever they’re available, validates results, and can create a backup of your graphics card BIOS.
It supports Windows OS, from XP to higher versions, and it includes a GPU load test to verify the PCI-Express lane configuration.
It is free to use for both personal and commercial usage, but you cannot redistribute it as a commercial package.
The Sapphire Trixx software is the key to unlocking your processor and graphics card’s performance to the maximum while saving custom settings for your favorite games.
The interface may look deceptively simple, but you can tweak your fan speeds dynamically and discover a lot you need to know about your graphics card.
It has a cutting edge overclocking technology that a novice or a pro can use.
With Trixx, you can change you’re clock, voltage and memory clocks, and get simple visual feedback to see how the changes affect your system’s stability.
Plus you get five different custom profiles to save your tweaks, and two automatic modes for high end performance or silent running.
Whatever you need to know, Trixx will reveal it, plus it has an integrated flexible set of fan control gear into the overclocking suite, so with the click of a button, you can change the fan speeds with automatic settings, or use a fixed speed.
But there’s the option of a custom setting for power users with an adjustable curve relative to the core temperature.
Other features include color control using Nitro Glow, which makes it look as good as the games themselves, and the unique fan health check system which lets you quickly check a cooler’s status, and in case of issues, you can contact their customer support who will send out a fan replacement immediately.
There’s also a Quick Connect one-screw system that lets you replace or clean individual fans in minutes.
