Default Overclocking

Okay, my question concern overclocking my processor. I ran BIOS Agent and it said the Max speed of my processor is 1300 MHz, (yes I know, its slow as hell). How exactly do you overclock? and how big of a chance would I have of overheating or something happening that could cause damage?

Default If you ask the question on how to overclock, **use extreme caution**

If you ask the question on how to overclock, I would not attempt it until you read up about overclocking as much as possible. Look on every website you can find, and also try and find out as much as possible about your processer and motherboard, you need to find out first and formost if your combination is overclock friendly, meaning, trying to avoid the "damage" that you speak of. Overclocking is an art form, it takes patients, the right tools, and an experianced hand to do the job well. Inter this realm of Computers with extreme caution. You can blow a computer system away with the a simple stroke of a key if you do not know what you are doing. Your flip side to the reality side. Newt

A test to which no one knows
