Extreme Games heeft een overclocking artikel in elkaar gedraaid met alle info die we allang kennen van andere sites. Oja, overklokken schijnt gevaarlijk te zijn...

But they are risks involved in overclocking. The major one is the effect called electromigration. Basically, all CPUs will eventually die from this effect, but most CPUs are rated to last about ten years, and hopefully no one will still be using today's technology in ten years. Overclocking, especially increasing the voltage going to the CPU, speeds up electromigration. The brave souls who do this are betting that by the time electromigration claims their CPU, they will have already upgraded and it won't matter anymore. This is where cooling comes in. CPU fans and miscellaneous cooling devices can help to keep the CPU heat down and maybe nullify the necessity to increase voltage. Both of these help to slow electromigration. Some chips, like Cyris, IBM, and AMD CPUs, run hot at their normal clock speed, so cooling is imperative when overclocking these chips.

   In an office environment, consistent performance is very important, and avoiding system crashes or hangs is crucial. By overclocking, one increases the chances of the occurence of a system fault. It is a good idea to put a system through a rigorous test before doing anything important on it. A good program for this testing is Winstone.
