I overclocked a MSI GeForce gt 610 with 810mhz up to 1ghz, I have to just right alignment so it doesn’t crash or not too low that I’m not using all potential. Now I got from being 25-27fps to 40-60 FPS. Major improvement.

Some old cars actually had screws under the gas-pedal and fuel pump to limit power :D easy overclock on those! Nowadays cars are pretty much a pc on wheels.

plus I am also having a little issue with the advance on command center when I click on advance button and I click on voltage most of them are green and like 4 of them goes on red I don't know why and I would like to keep the voltage low I think it has to do with ram voltage maybe but how do I get that issue fixed so it dosent keep going back to red because I have to lower the v so it can go back to green

I overclocked my x399 msi 1920 build with oc genie but not all the way only clicked on set 4 and I only have 750 wtt evga g3 gold and a 710 gpu gtx witch I will be upgrading soon to a 1060 or 1070 plus I have 16 gb of ram vengeance pro what do you think

In my experience of computer hardware (about 20 years now), it's only really worth OC your components if you're able to get a significant increase in speed and this will mean being able to cool those components which can be fairly expensive itself. That may sound obvious at first but to give an example... If I OC my CPU using an after market cooler, I can go from 3.8 ghz to around 4.4 stable and within the max voltages/temps recommendations. So that's an increase of 600 mhz on each core. In reality, this gives me an extra 5-10% in Arma which works out to be around 4-8 frames depending on the situation. The question I have to ask myself is...is it worth putting an extra 20/25 degrees onto my CPU for a average gain of 5/6 frames? If I had a super cooled system and could run those cores at say, 4.8 ghz stable and within the max temps then the extra stress on the hardware would be more worthwhile. The thing is, why bother paying for the cooling when I can just buy a faster CPU/Board?

LukaMasterz (29 days ago)
I plan on getting a i5-8600k and a 1070ti, 16GB ram. I don't have issues with overclocking the GPU cause I tried it before and am not scared about that, am more scared of overclocking the CPU, which I have never done. I plan on having that build minimally 5 years (7 ideally) with possible ram upgrades a long the line. I'd also get a 240 liquid cooler from Cooler Master. Would the CPU last that long and the GPU?

Overclocking is about as safe as a consoler driving a PC, you WILL crash unless you learn how to drive. Don't do it unless A: You KNOW what your doing B: You don't care about damage or wear. Even a "stable" overclock will reduce the longevity of your components, just because the engine is running, doesn't mean it sounds good when it's hauling a load. This is why your consoles don't let you access the bios and set the multipliers yourself, otherwise 90% of users will be yelling at the manufacturer for their own epic failures. Most will have a corrupted system where a app is "lagging", not even pay attention to utilization, skip that step, and overclock as if it's even going to help. People would be returning their mobiles every week if they inherantly allowed overclocks driving every single manufacturer bankrupt.

Is overclocking psps okay? When I do it It’s really quiet and it’s not that hot at all
Der Wolf (1 month ago)
I'm only halfway through this video and I still don't understand any of this. When it comes to PCs all I know is that there's USBs, drivers, a CD/DVD player, and the power button. Anyways I'm running a Alienware aurora are five with a GeForce GTX 1070. Got a question I'm hoping you can answer. Is it safe to overclock that thing? I currently don't have the funds to replace it. Any of it.
Der Wolf (1 month ago)
Sorry I was wrong it's an Intel I core. And I don't really think that overclocking is necessary right now because it runs it a standard 3.40 GHz. I wish I was joking.

alistair bolden (1 month ago)
Sorry to have to say this but Jay is 100% wrong, and don't take my word on it, ask every manufacturer they say the same thing. Being to hot is only a small part of what ruins cpu's and ram and makes them degrade. The materials they are made from are improving in high end products to allow for more overclocking as time goes but if you are overclocking you should never run that overclock for a sustained ammount of time. When Jay said he got an 84% on a cpu and it was on 24/7 for 7 years what he really should have said was that he had that cpu in idle for almost all of 7 years just running games and bences on it for an hour or two a day. Most of that 7 years it had no load at all, and the mb was killed by a voltage spike likely during one such bench. What alot of guys like Jay seem to think is that as long as the cpu is cool its fine. That is not the case what so ever. And he has bricked several perfectly good cpu's and gpu's because of that. TLDR: As a gamer you should never have any need to overclock any part of your PC to run a nice smooth 60fps. Anyone who tells you its a good idea, is a damn idoit.

daniel alex (2 months ago)
after a lot of consideration wether to do this or not i decided to overclock my gpu. everything went fine and just like you said in the videos until i noticed my cpu degree. it was on 96 C¨ and had been there for maybe 1-2min before me even noticing it. I then turned of the kombustor and it went down again to around 45 C¨. After this i got afraid something might have been burned so i started cs go and played casual. My fps was sitting on 80-120 and my mouse was stuttering af. Note that my fps before this happened was over 230. I dont know wether i can fix this or not but right now im so sad about this. I think i just broke my computer or atleast the CPU. Is there anything i can do? pls help

My rx580 4gb Nitro+ cant get an overclock until i increase the voltage. I've finally got a stable one, on +31 mV, 1438 core clock (from 1411), and 2200 on the memory (from 2000). Should i keep it like this or is the voltage harmfull?

What about underclocking? I'm on a power budget (off grid solar) and i'm looking to run on as little power as possible. I run low settings in games at 720p, but i need dx12 compatibility and enough memory. I want a 1050ti but i'd like to be able to limit it to somewhere between 30 and 50 watts when i'm on battery power. Is there any good info on tuning cards for max efficiency rather than performance?

Frosticious (2 months ago)
Watching your videos, I understood that a mild software tweak to GPU wouldn't cause any damage. I increased the core clock by 125 mHz and increased the max temps and power limits to max. It was fine for a few seconds until I ran 3DMark 11, when my computer restarted. After the restart, the MSI start up logo screen was all glitchy and distorted. I immediately went into safe-mode to uninstall afterburner, but that didn't fix it. Please tell me my MSI GTX 980 isn't broken now. https://imgur.com/a/ovTjEkq

I saw some OC videos for threadripper and the temp gets 100c-118c with the best cooling around. how can these temperatures not cut lifespan?
Danny Deerborne (2 months ago)
Hello J, I am considering overclocking my i5 7500. It runs at 3.40 GHz. I have a GTX 1050Ti to it. I am an avid Flight Simmer, and Scenery Designer. At present, I would love to upgrade to an i7 but am constrained by cost. Overclocking, at the moment, is a logical step. My MB is an ASrock H270Pro4 with 16GB Ram 2400. Please make a vid or tutorial on doing this. I have seen so many on the Tube, and most are BS, kiddies playing at making vids, This would surely be helpful to us, and me...Thanks

Ask yourself first why you are going to OC? Games, video editing or rendering or just browsing? Or perhaps benchmarking ? OC CPU will not do anything when you are browsing or doing MS Excel!!

Compared to overclocking a graphics card, this sounds so much more complicated and risky.
