what is "burning in" a cpu - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I've stated this in another thread on the subject but I feel it bears repeating (sorry, my ego's showing I guess). I think the "burn-in" myth originates from the following scenerio, "hey, I'm gonna oc my rig, wow, 2.5, awsome!" "Man, I've been running this thing at 2.5 for months now, I'm bored, lets see what it will do now." "Hey look! It's running 2.7 stable, I must have burned it in!" The reality is more likely that in those months the user has learned more about the subtle art of overclocking and doesn't realize it, tries to oc some more and comes up with better combinations of settings and VIOLA!, it must be burn in.

Not true.
After a while, some processors will require less voltage after running a certan amount of time. A lot of people have experienced this thpe of "burn in".
