  • Another installer for i5-9600K and i7-9700K skus with the name “Core i5-9600K and Core i7-9700K Installer.zip”

What Is Overclocking?

Overclocking your unlocked Intel Core processor, RAM, and motherboard is a way to custom tune your PC. You can adjust the power, voltage, core, memory settings, and other key system values for more performance. It helps speed up your components—and your gameplay. It can also help with processor-intensive tasks such as image rendering and transcoding.
