Windows 7: A way to overclock an Intel Cpu without the risk.

A way to overclock an Intel Cpu without the risk.

Yes I know that everyone say you need to add voltage to a cpu to overclock it. If you are worried about burning up CPU there is another way. For those who use any ix processor simply move up the Base clock or bclock. For those who still have a LGA 775 processor just turn up the Front Side Bus or FSB.

There is no way to overclock without risk. The question is how much risk, for how much gain.

The thing is my mobo has something called C.P.R (CPU.Parameter.Recall) so it can actually reset the CPU in an event of failure. you can read more about it here. ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- FAQ FAQ What is the new ASUS C.P.R function?

Most boards designed for Overclocking have similar features, although it may be named or function somewhat different.
Some use a dual bios method even, which falls back to fail safe defaults bios.

Others simply reset to defaults if it fails. it can also be adjusted. For example, if it fails to boot twice (or whatever setting), then reset.
Many of the higher end OCing boards have been doing this for a while.

Some just have a button on the back of the board as well, that you simply press to reset at any time.(Which is the same thing only done manually) Still no need to open the Chassis.

Even if you are looking to OC withought adjusting voltages, you are still OCing.
Stability and Heat are still a issue.

Just as Zigzag said, there is always a risk.

No, you do not always have to turn up voltage.
Yes, this method will still create heat and carries an inherent risk.
Overclocking consists of changing 3 things: Front side bus (FSB), clock multiplier (your "base clock"), and CPU Voltage. The ideal overclock will have the FSB and clock as high as possible, with the voltage as low as possible.
Just changing any 1 of those 3 things can cause instability and a heat increase (or decrease).
Your idea of overclocking by just increasing the clock is completely valid, but this DOES NOT MAKE IT ANY SAFER!
It can still break the CPU, cause instability, or overheating, etc.

This won't help you if you actually damage it.

I think it's funny when people who have never overclocked or who aren't overclocking their rig give advice about it and the dangers involved. In this area of expertise it's best to give out advice from the standpoint of experience I think.

As one who is experienced with overclocking I'll also add that overclocking DOES involve risk. You're pushing an item beyond it's design limits, that in and of itself involves risk. The question is.... are you experienced enough to avoid those risks???

If you're planing on overclocking, do some research; that means read, read, read, and read. After that, if you feel brave enough, start out slow and ask questions!

My two cents.
