noob overclcoking question

Recommended Posts

Is there a risk of damaging the CPU only if the voltage is increased? If the voltage is not increased is it possible for the CPU do be damaged more than it would if no overclocking was done? Can overclocking without voltage increase damage the CPU?

"Can overclocking without voltage increase damage the CPU?"

 

Minimal chance, you'll find if you set the frequency too high on stock voltages the computer will crap out and not boot.

 

It's when you jack the voltage up skywards to make it boot/be stable at high clock speeds that you run in problems like more heat and circuit degredation.

 

 

 

 

Correct me if I am wrong anyone.
