MSI Afterburner

MSI Afterburner 4.6

Accesses graphics card settings for overclocking
Monitor and overclock your graphics card in order to increase its performance, reduce heating or enable/disable specific function when running the system and launching gaming applications. The utility provides a detailed overview of your hardware and features benchmarking and video recording options.

MSI Afterburner is an overclocking utility developed for Windows. With its help, you can push your graphics card harder and faster than the manufacturer designed them to go.
Besides overclocking your graphics card, this program also provides you with hardware information, lets you modify your fan profiles, and brings you benchmarking capabilities.

In addition, you have access to a wide range of useful tips which might compensate the fact that the utility lacks an integrated help manual.

The only thing you need to consider is the fact that it's not suitable for beginner PC users. Altering some of the default settings (for example, changing the fan speed) the wrong way might cause some serious hardware issues. So, make sure you're aware of the things this program can do and how to make use of its features effectively.

Briefly, MSI Afterburner is one of the most popular overclocking tools developed for Windows PCs. It brings you many advantages, works 100%, and comes without a price. So, you should definitely give it a shot, especially if you're familiar with the overclocking and benchmarking terms.
