Risk Of Overclocking

The risk of overclocking can be large or it can be small, this usually depends on the amount of research you have done before you started overclocking.

Understand the symptoms of an unsuccessful overclock, then make the changes.  If your computer does any of the following you will need to make adjustments to avoid damage to your components.

  • Crashing - When working does your system randomly reboot, the risk of not fixing this is damaging Windows to the point you need to reinstall it.  
  • Blue Screen Errors - When you overclock, this is why it is good to do overclock components one at a time, then run the system as usual for a week.  That way if you get a blue screen, the cause is most likely the last component you overclocked.  
  • Temperature Warnings - Because the amount of heat generated when overclocking, you need to be aware of the temperature tolerances of the component you are overclocking.  Set your motherboard temperature monitoring software to make an audible warning.  Failure to do so will probably result in permanent component failure.  
  • Lost Progress - Make sure you test system stability before you start using the computer for any work you want to keep.  Failure to do so will most likely result in lost work because the files don't get saved on a crash.  

In short, instability is the most minor risk, burning out a component is the greatest risk.
