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.Originally Posted by sabbathcrazy;15105564
Exactly, overclocking is easy as well. You do not need to know much, just basics. I do not understand why people act like they just solved a oober hard math problem after ocing. People brag about their overclocks like its hard and dangerous. 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.
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 laptopI 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?
