Overlocking a Pentium G850 CPU

Specs: Windows 7, 4 Gig
Hi there, just a quick question.

I was just wondering if I'd be able to overclock my CPU just a bit, to increase performance in games mainly.

My computer isn't the best, evidently but I was just wondering what I could do to just increase the performance regardless of how little it may be.

My CPU is a 2.90 gigahertz Intel Pentium G850
Motherboard: ASRock H61DEL
RAM: 4 gig
Graphics card: Nvidia GeForce 630

With my motherboard drivers it came with a program called ASRock eXtreme Tuner, I'm gathering I use this program to overclock?

thanks for any advice.

No, it's best to overclock in the BIOS.

I don't believe any of the Sandy/Ivy Bridge Pentiums can be overclocked. Doesn't really matter, though; the video card is what you should be upgrading for better 3D performance.

edit - oops, according to the article kuwese linked, Pentium G processors can be very slightly overclocked.
