First, we will start with afterburner software that is third-party software. This software is developed by MSI (Micro-Star International) and it chiefly aims at tweaking the graphics cards. For afterburner download, you need to go to the company’s website and download it. When the download gets finished, you can extract the RAR file. To install the software you need to run the EXE file. MSI afterburner is a default function which comes with Riva Tuner Statistics Server. It lets you monitor the temperatures and usage of various components in the system. In any case, you don’t want it; you can skip it by unchecking the box while installing it.

It basically depends on what GPU you are having. Considering mine is that type of laptop GPU which is locked. Nevertheless, if you are able to slide it, just move the Power limit slider to the extreme right. Now move the Temperature limit slider which is based on your preference. This is the only slider which will determine the maximum temperature of your GPU.

• This is the prominent steps in the overall process. This step is dedicated to the squeezing out every bit of your GPU performance. Are you able to notice the sliders for ‘Memory Clock’ and ‘Core Clock’ just below the Temperature Limit Option? Now we are going to have fun with the sliders. If you are a first-timer in overclocking, you must get assured about increasing the sliders for Memory Clock in steps of 100 MHz and Core Clock in steps of 50 MHz.

• Once you are done with that just go ahead and start playing some graphically intensive games on it. This must be done while monitoring GPU temperature on MSI Afterburner.
