What's it take provided you're not trying to break an overclocking world record? Stupidity. They're really tough to break without intentionally trying to.

if your not trying to break records you wont break it, simple as that, even on the stock heatsink with the fan off it will get hot but not break (i had many silly ideas when i was learning SB:)

Only cpu I've killed was a 2500k, at pretty reasonable vcore. Was trying to stabilize a memory kit at the 2133 strap & upped the VTT 1 more notch & poof, never booted again. Rest of the system was fine though, just the cpu dead.

All it takes is 1.9V's + crappy air cooling to fry a chip almost instantly.

Or, a 250V shock to the processor to make it catch on fire.

Or, you beat the Shiznit out of your PC.

Your pick ghostrider.

The only people that have a right to brag are the ones that use nitro to get insane 5.5ghz clocks and even then the computer is doing most of the work.
Light overclocks are easy, moderate ones take some research. Maxing a CPU out for a stable 24/7 OC is not easy. That's why you don't see many, or you just see a CPUz shot 'cuase it's not really stable.

I don't consider the suicide runs any harder than tuning for a high-end 24/7 clock. It's just different. Like drag racing vs road racing.

Is this true?
In theory, you could overclock extreme (5.5ghz+) with very high volts, as long as you can magically keep the temps under 60 (not possible though)
But the cpu may degrade much quicker

1 chrome window containing 10 videos running, and 1 zoom session with at least 20 people, it may not work for you, but i did it in an online session and managed to fry 1 unfixable laptop

I have been doing a little research on overclock and I do not understand why so many articles say that their is a chance you can fry your CPU. I have never experienced this. I have never seen a forum posted about it. I dont think it happens any more with these newer chips. Allot of them have fail safe shut off switches. Really the only way your going to fry it is if you turn your voltage up WAY to high and even then it will just shut down. My friends think I am dumb for OCing my computer because of people that preach ocing is dangerous.

What are your experiences? What does it take to fry a CPU?
