Hello there. Can someone help me with overclocking my CPU to 4.0 GHz its at stock. Anyone with good profiles?
I am using Intel Extreme Tuning Utility. These are defaults for me: http://prntscr.com/oxux4n

What should I changed and to what?

Thanks

I would also use something like hwinfo64 or CPU-Z to look at clock speeds, probably more reliable than task manager. Note that it will only go to max frequency under load. If you're limited by your GPU in games your CPU may not boost. Can look at max GPU and CPU usage while gaming to check (look at max usage on any single CPU core, not overall).

Which Intel cpu would you recommend that is not expensive but really good still to play games like PUBG, COD:BO4, arma 3 and similar games on high-ultra settings
