I own some Raspberry Pi’s ranging from the Pi 1 to the Pi 4 and to get extra performances, I normally overclock them. Not an easy task, but recently I have been using a really simple way to overclock all my Raspberry Pi models and it’s hassle free.

The Steps:

  1. Download DietPi OS and flash it to an SD Card.
  2. Boot up your Pi with a network cable and SSH to your Pi (DietPi has SSH enabled by default).
  3. Once you are logged in to the system, type “dietpi-config” to enter the configuration page.
  4. Choose the option (3) “Performance Options”.
  5. Then you should choose “Overclocking” which will bring you to an option screen as per the image above.
  6. Here you will see preconfigured profiles based on which version of Pi you are using. I would recommended “safe” if you are not very sure on what to choose.
  7. Once done, simply reboot your Pi and you can use it for whatever purpose you want.

Found this method to be really simple as it gets you around with switching between performance profiles anytime based on your needs.
