Title: Overclocking
Post by: Crafty on August 07, 2005, 02:22:30 PM
I know this isnt a problem, But you guys know what your talking about about so i just wanted your opinion on this. Is Overclocking really bad, bad or not so bad. I read things that say its ok with good cooling, Then i read its bad im not sure what is the truth behind it. I do know it can dammage stuff, But is there such thing as a good overclock that doesnt dammage anything.

Only overclock if you have plenty of money, understand the risks and understand how cooling works.

However, no matter how good the cooling, the system  can still become unstable and the life expectancy will degrade because you are using hardware on a level  that it was not meant for.
