How To Check CPU Speed After Overclocking

In this blog post, I will show you how to check CPU speed after overclocking. Overclocking is a great way to get more performance out of your computer system. However, there are some downsides that come with it too.

One downside is the risk of overheating and frying your CPU! To help avoid this problem, we need to make sure our CPU is running at the right speed before we start overclocking it. This article will walk you through a simple process for doing just that!

Before we get started, here is a little background on overclocking and what you’ll need to get it done.

What Is Overclocking?

Overclocking is the process of increasing your computer’s CPU speed above normal levels so that it performs better. There are many benefits to overclocking such as increased processing performance, faster gaming, and overall smoother computing.

There are many ways to overclock your CPU depending on what computer you have and the version of Windows you’re using. I’ll show you how to do it in Windows 7 for this example, but you should know that overclocking is different in each version of windows. Please consult our resources page if you would like more information on how to overclock in Windows XP or other versions of windows.

All You Will Need To Overclock Your CPU

Here is what you will need before starting the process: A computer with an Intel/AMD processor (or both) that supports overclocking A copy of your computers BIOS (motherboard) – I would recommend getting this from either the manufacturer of your motherboard or from the motherboard forums at Tom’s Hardware Motherboard A simple free program called CPU-Z

Getting Started

The first thing to do is plug in a USB drive and create a folder on it named “bios”. This folder will be used for saving our BIOS files. Then download CPU-Z – a utility that will tell you all sorts of information about your computer and its CPU.

To check the BIOS version of your motherboard, start up CPU-Z and look under “Mainboard” (see screenshot below). The first line will display important information such as the name and model number of your motherboard; manufacturer; BIOS version; and whether or not it supports overclocking.

Once you have that information, it’s time to start the BIOS update process!

(My motherboard supports overclocking but I’m not sure if my CPU supports it.)

If your CPU does not support overclocking, there is nothing else you need to do other than go ahead with the BIOS transfer process. However, if your CPU does support overclocking, you will need to check your BIOS version so that you can compare it to the newest version available.

How To Check CPU Speed After Overclocking?

The first and easiest method is to do it inside the OS. You can open Task Manager by pressing Ctrl + Shift + Esc, then go under the “Performance” tab where you will see your new CPU speed along with other info about how long tasks have been running for as well as what apps/processes are using up resources right now- this might fluctuate depending on what we’re doing at any given moment so I don’t think its reliable enough!

Ok, this is the easiest way to overclock your processor. All you need are some spare parts and an hour or two! First off JUST CHANGE THE POWER PLAN on Windows so that 100% of its resources get assigned at all times (you can change it back if needed).

Then go into System settings under Control Panel-or press windows key +Pause Break when booting up with those keyboard shortcuts enabled in bios also.

From the information shown here, it appears that your processor manufacturer is Intel and you can see the clock speed in GHz. For example 3.82GHz

The first number (MHz) represents how many megahertz per second each core runs at; 2nd digit stands for dual-core chips while single-socket ones have only one tick mark separating both numbers representing separate processing threads on those cores – so if a computer has two CPUs but only 1GB of RAM installed this would be denoted by 1000MHz

The DirectX Diagnostic Tool is a method to troubleshoot problems with your computer. It can be accessed via Start and typing dxdiag, then pressing Enter for Windows 8 or 10.

After about three seconds of loading time, you will see an opening window that displays information from both your system’s processor as well as overclocking settings if available on ours – including manufacturer name/model number under ‘Processor’.

CPU-Z is the perfect program to check your computer’s clock speed. It can also tell you other details, like the voltage, and even show which cores are active in real-time!

Another way for people who want more detail on their processors has been using third-party software such as Core temp or AMD Ryzen Master Software that provides easy access through an interface rather than having multiple websites open at once.

Clock speeds are an important part of your computer’s performance, and knowing exactly what they mean can help you decide how much power a processor should have.

In this article, we will discuss the basics so that even if you don’t know anything else about clocks or technology in general – there won’t be any confusion! The first thing worth mentioning is Hz (hertz). Hz stands for “ Hertz” frequency which means cycles per second just as 1 kHz equals 1000 Hz; 2GHz equates to 2 million hertz while 3Gium = 300000 HZ.”

In Windows computers when people want their clock speed reported out accurately it’ll say.


Well. This is what I know about overclocking. So, you are free to do whatever you want with this information… If you think there are any mistakes here, kindly tell me in the comment section down below! (My motherboard supports overclocking but I’m not sure if my CPU supports it.)

If your CPU does not support overclocking then that’s sad news… I wish you good luck in finding out about this! 

One more thing, if you are using an Intel processor then try using the “Intel Extreme Tuning Utility” to overclock. It works best when overclocking Intel processors. Also, I read somewhere on the web that AMD CPUs are already overclocked
