Solar flares and overclocks....

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Observations show that the sun is entering a period of intense activity, and solar flares are expected at rates unprecedented in modern times.

Along with power failures and satellite failures, we could see some interference with our rigs.

Anyone finding information on the subject, especially relative to reactions in the transformers and circuits of our rigs, please append your thoughts.

I'm not sure how much solar flares would affect overclocks. There is a good chance that it might.

I do know that solar flares do cause weirdness to happen with computers (usually by delivering dirty power, and zapping bits in the memory).

Put your pc in an air conditioned box at the bottom of the ocean with 8 feet of lead on each side. Problem solved!

My rig is sealed in a concrete bunker anyway, so no worries here.

XFX keep claiming I can't have an RMA as solar flares damaged my card. I'm raging!
