a gamer and a overclocker is 2 different things. even a enthusiasts and a gamer, again are 2 different things, why you might ask cause an enthusiasts will overclock hes system for folding lets say or video editing, and some enthusiasts will overclock to break oc records and yes some will oc to play games, as for a gamer some like to overclock and some leave there system at stock but in the end there still a gamer, a overclocker and enthusiasts have some differences as well, so you see Rodney they way you where going about saying to people what a gamer is you're false, still respect
I overclock it all. Next is going full water to go even harder. So far I have squeezed 5.1Ghz on my 2600k for bench runs and 150/500 offsets on my 680SLI setup. I am pretty sure it will go farther if I get water on it all.
Hello! I just watched this video! Would it bottleneck my system when I have(I'll just post all my pc specs, even soundcard and maybe unnecessary stuff liek that) 2 ZOTAC Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 4GB in SLI, Intel i5 3570K(If I get this build I will overclock EVERY.DAMN.THING in it), Corsair 16GB(2x8) Dominator Platinum 1866MHz CL9, Gigabyte G1.Sniper 3 Mobo, Western Digital 1.5TB Caviar Black 7200RPM, OCZ 128GB Octane Series SSD,CoolerMaster 1300W Silent Pro Hybrid PSU and SoundBlaster X-Fi Titanium HD. Would it bottleneck? Do I need a more powerful processor? Processor cooler is Phanteks PH-TC14PE(more or less best air cooling solution at the moment, you should review it if you haven't already ;))
are you ok what stupid question, your rig is fast and NO YOU DONT NEED TO UPDGRADE, i think you just came on this site brag, man i hate spoiled so offs
A few years ago when I was doing an 8600GTS SLI, I overclocked them as much as they would go. I have two GTX 480 cars now and they run everything, so I dont need to overclock them. They already run super hot, anyway.
I tried overclocking my Core 2 Quad Q9550 once, but it was never very stable. I heard that nvidia chipsets arent very good for overclocking, but I dont know if that is true.
everytime i try overclock my i7 950 to 4ghz i always have issue and even with my two msi gtx 580 sli cards i sux ass lol
"What should be overclocked?..... EVERY. DAMN. THING. should be overclocked" LOL if that was on a shirt i would buy 3! Best quote EVAR!
LOL... It's true though ;)
You may find this a stupid question but I don't deal with computers a lot and I like gaming on them occasionally. Are you able to overclock a laptop? If you are able to overclock a laptop, do I have to do it personally or am I able to get someone to do it for me? Also are there any risks in overclocking?
The majority of laptops are not overclockable.
Unlike the good old days when overclocking was done by moving jumper caps of flipping switches on the motherboard, today all overclocking is done by using the system bios functions. These days if your system bios does not provide overclocking facilities, you won't be overclocking.
Sadly most laptops fall into this category as well as many of the products put out by the likes of Lenovo, Compaq, HP and Dell.
While chip and DIY motherboard makers encourage overclocking, big-box system builders do not want the support nightmares that will inevitably happen if a customer borks up their system by overclocking it.
If you're into computer this Q&A would seem silly, but many are not, so for those it's gold!
Yeah, all time i buy a new PC, i pass like 1-2 week just to overlcock before installing whatsoever programs/games !!! i'd always run my PC to the MAX !!! Had a Pentium 4 SL8K4 (3.4ghz) and run it at 4.35ghz with ddr1 400 at 512mhz speed (that was really fast in the time !!!) and now my Q6600 G0-SLACR at 4.05Ghz with 1066 HyperX RAM @ 1126mhz !!! My next rig will sure be overclocked too but i'll keep this one like i had keep my P4 with my 3850 AGP to the limit (2007-2008 then i changed for my C2Q and i think i'll change in late 2012 or in the first months of 2013 to Ivy or the next gen intel cpu ;-)
