Why an Overclock E-Course? Why destroy a perfectly good processor or memory?
There are different reasons for over clocking your processor and memory. For
example you are in a test environment and need to know the maximum that your
product will produce before failure. Or you are the type that has to push your
equipment to the maximum. Maybe you are like me and are always one or two steps
behind the latest and greatest and want the benefit of the latest and greatest.
Or you have economic reasons for not upgrading and go the route of over clocking.
So before you start speeding up your processor and memory you should know what
your tinkering will do to the components of the computer.
Before you sign up for this course you will need a computer that allows you to
over clock the processor and the FSB, to find out if your computer supports these
functions you need to check the BIOS settings. Most BIOS settings for the
processor speed and FSB are under the Advanced section. You are looking for the
Processor Multiplier and the FSB clock speed.
If your computer does not have these settings your can not over clock the
processor, memory, or change the FSB.
Note: Most laptops are this way, there are very few
settings you can modify in a laptop BIOS. However you can "cheat" and do some
minor changes by upgrading the processor and memory.
Which is covered in this ecourse.
The first consideration before even reading the process of over clocking is what
will this do to your equipment? Depends on what you do before you over clock your
processor and / or memory. The main factor that will kill your computer (not
just the processor and / or the memory) is HEAT.
When you increase the clock frequency you are in effect increasing
voltage in the devices that make your computer work, cpu, memory, and
anything connected to the main bus of the computer.
Do you know what APCI stands for? Do you know that if you turn it
off your performance will suffer?
To keep from destroying the devices you need to consider cooling all the devices
inside the computer case not just the processor or the memory.
