Default Overclocking thoughts...

Hey just wondering if overclocking is really safe for a AMD X2 64 3800+ CPU and a MS 7191 MOBO with a X1300 256MB ATI Vid Card.... just wondering if the worst case scenario happens can i easily recover my pc to its old condition?? thanks

Please don't post the same question in different threads. I already answered to your previous thread about this. Actually you should of posted here first, in the overclocking section.

Worst case scenario is component failure, which is unrecoverable.

Its pretty hard to destroy a computer by overclocking, its safe as long as you dont do anything stupid..

Like baron5 said, take it slow when raising the FSB to OC the CPU. Do it in, increments of 5-10MHz, and then check for stability each time. Use programs like Prime95 or Orthos to stress for stability. A good run for stability is 8-24 hrs.
