MSI AFTERBURNER

Maximum PC - - SPEED UP WINDOWS -

OVER­CLOCK­ING your graph­ics card won’t turn it into the lat­est model, ob­vi­ously, but it can im­prove its per­for­mance, to make barely playable games run that bit more smoothly. If your PC comes with an AMD or Nvidia graph­ics chip, MSI Afterburner ( www.msi.com/page/afterburner) has your back.

It works by en­abling you to tweak your chip’s clock fre­quency and volt­age, while also giv­ing you con­trol over any on­board fans to help to try to min­i­mize the tem­per­a­ture in­crease. Bet­ter still, there are real-time mon­i­tors to show you the ef­fects of your overclock, too. Re­mem­ber— you risk dam­ag­ing your graph­ics card by over­clock­ing, so use with care.
