Okay so I have been running this PC for a while mostly just doing word for college and what not. I built this computer about a year ago using an asus R9 290-dcoc-4gd5, mushkin blackline pcs3, and an AMD a107850K. I apologize if some of the information is not there or incorrect. My bench test scores on 3DMark are: firestrike 1.1 7,203, skydiver 1.0 17,573, Cloudgate 1.1 12,777, Icestorm 1.1 85,5435 and the test indicated that my PC was above 60% of other PCs tested. While I don't play video games I am looking to do so (recommendations welcome) as well as advice on overclocking the components of my PC. Right now the only water cooled component is the APU.

Again just looking for Games, overclocking advice and general tips to make my pc run smoother and faster. This was my first build and would like to play around with it for a bit.

I'm not sure on what the mother board is but it might be the asus A88x-pro.

Thanks Burpo so far for the links I read through them and was able to change my GPU through the GPU tweak program but for some reason I can not find the program to mess with the motherboard. checked the asus website and a general google search as well as doing a file search on my computer. I will test my pc with the listed above becnchmarks to and see what the overclock with the GPU tweak gave me

if your running 1080p the 290 will be held back by the 7850k in a lot of games
press del key on startup to enter bios and overclock cpu\ram there

I Started tweaking a bit with the GPU tweak and so far I'm up to 7301 on fire strike (3dbenchmark). Dasa2 I will do that, is there anything in particular i should be looking for to change?

So far i have gotten to 7301 on Fire strike (3dmark) by messing with the GPU on GPU tweak. Dasa2 I will do that, what should I be looking for within the bios to change. I tried reading up on a lot of what I am asking but found my self following the rabbit hole with the plethora of acronyms, code names, and various other tech jargon
