What is overclocking? Is it safe? These are the questions that are being raised by computer users when the topic is about overclocking. Basically, overclocking is a process wherein you are running a hardware component in a speed higher than the usual or higher than the speed that is stated on the manual. In this article, I’ll only just be discussing to you the things that you must know about overclocking and not the steps on how to overclock your computers because personally, I really don’t advice overclocking your computers.

Overclocking is normally done to maximize the potential speed of a specific component. Overclocking will result to an added performance on your computer. Most overclockers are just testing the capacity of their systems. They would like to squeeze their systems to the fastest speed possible without losing its stability. Overclocking can add speed and performance on your computer but it can easily wear out your components. If you are into overclocking, make sure that you know what you are doing. There are cases wherein overclocking was done wrong and resulted to a burned component.

Overclocking a computer is not an easy thing to do, if you are really interested in overclocking your computer do it slowly but surely to avoid problems and possible accidents. You can also ask someone who knows how to overclock and let him guide you. In this way, it will be safer for you and at the same time, you’ll learn. If you really want to overclock your pc, I advise you to look for a high performance cooling system because overclocked components produces a large amount of heat which a stock cooling system can’t handle.

Most overclockers are using the liquid cooling system wherein a tube like component is installed in your system to produce better heat dissipation. In this case, components might be safer and cooler but are still not guaranteed. One thing that you need to remember before overclocking your components is that any warranty will be voided once the component is overclocked. The company won’t be liable in any damage during or after overclocking.

Basically,if you’ll be asking me if overclocking is safe, I’ll be answering no because it can lower the lifespan of your components. Overclocking a computer can also result to overheating issues because the higher the voltage supplied the higher amount of heat it releases. Bottom line; don’t risk your computer’s components by overclocking.
