    Please let me know what ya’ll think of this article, I am a noob at overclocking (Have not done it just yet to be honest but this rig was built with gaming and overclocking in mind) so I am trying to find things to read and learn from. I will post a picture the first paragraph and a link to the artle. Thank you for reading.

     

    Overclocking for Beginners

     

    Level up.

    Sometimes getting the best bang for your buck with PC components means putting a little extra work in, whether that’s shopping around for the best prices online, or researching which CPU or GPU is best suited to the task at hand. But, if you’re willing to go the extra mile, the best returns often come from overclocking. For the uninitiated, overclocking means taking a piece of hardware–most commonly a CPU or GPU–and running it at a faster speed than the manufacturer intended, giving you the performance of higher-priced models for less cash. While there’s an element of risk to the process–you can significantly shorten the life of your components or permanently damage them if something goes awry–if you’re sensible, disasters are rare. The process of overclocking isn’t as complicated as some would have you believe either, and with a bit of computing know-how, and some patience, it’s possible to significantly boost your PC’s performance with just a few tweaks.

    Not yet, he was going to get it to Fed-Ex and get me the price tag. I will call him tomorrow evening and find out more, I don’t like to bug people during the weekends.

    The atmosphere here isn’t really overclocking-friendly. I got my i5 4690K from 3.6Ghz (i think) to 4.2Ghz with a deepcool gammax S40 and artic S5 but the temps were reaching 8like 0+C on if i remember 1.14v 😀

    I feel the same way to be honest, took quite a bit of saving and time to get my current build, it would take me at least 6 months to replace everything.
