I know there are limitations in terms of heat e.g. you need very good cooling because the CPU gets too hot but is there a limit that the os can...utilize...so to speak or a limit on the motherboard? Thanks
Ofcourse, If you overclock it to much then you can fry it!
If your overclocking your CPU then you want to do atleast 400Mhz or you really wont notice a difference, Google your cpu for overclocking to check what sort of overclocking they are getting and copy theirs with like 10 under. This way your secure. Overclocking avoids warrenty.
I ahve my 2.4 x2 @ 2.7
overclockin is so different now... I remember my athlon xp and all you needed to do was up the fsb
now you have to alter the volts etc
yes there is a limit to what you will get from them
if the mobo cant handle it it wont boot so you know you went 2 far
its near impossible to fry a cpu nowadays mate...
the mobo will not allow windows to boot if the overclock is ott ;)
