Should i overclock myself or not? - Page 3

post #21 of 23
you can overclock yourself by doing regular weight lifting, it taktes time but its worth it in the end

joking aside id just buy the chip and overclock it myself, as im assuming your paying extra to have it pre overclocked...which in all fairness even to a beginner tech user only takes like 15 minutes to overclock.

It's a good learning experience to overclock yourself. My 2500k is at 4.5 on air but I didn't feel the need to go higher, I'm only a gamer. You could probably do 4.8, provided your ambients aren't ridiculous.
