Default Overclocking

Since Overclocking refers to the managing of the CPU’s element to perform a much higher speed or clock/s, there are various considerations regarding this matter. Be certain that the system supplies enough power to generate the overclock. Please consider the following when attempting to overclock the system:

Cooling: Since all electronic circuits and devices produces heat due to the progression of electrons, quality heatsinks are needed to administer the heat generated when overclocking. Due to the increased of heat created by the overclocking element, it is a requirement to use an efficient cooling system to avoid hardware damage.

Functional and Stability Correctness: Various users claimed that functional and stability testing ensures that the system will function correctly and stable. The “stress tests” will broadcasts the issues regarding overclocking, if no errors occur, then the overclocking component is stable.

Overclocking Factors: Manufacturers incorporates additional margins to be utilized when overclocking. Generally, the components are tested to its limit to determine its actual speed rating. The clock speed is normally set below the actual speed rate.

Effects of Overclocking: The benchmarks are utilized to calculate the components performance. This is to determine the stability and other factors regarding overclocking.

Variance: It is the degree where a specific component is overclock. Various processors are overclocked using various degrees.
