But I've done it already.
Just take the slack for it, or what not. Learn from your mistakes.
Yeah well we just bought it 10 hours ago,
and now I'm really ****ed up.
I don't know what happened to the pc though. I got yelled out and told to move out.
Didn't know if the PC worked or not. lol.

of course with many new machines removing the side panel can void the warranty ,or at least it did a couple of years ago with a packard bell i owned.
anyhow good luck with that.
surely a brand new machine would have been operating fine without need for overclock.
are you feeling guilty yet ?
sorry is a good word to remember when it comes to angry dads. i know, im one.

If the warranty is void then I am sure we can help him out from now on....Actually this forum is 100 times more useful that the warranty lol.

Good Luck

Paul.

How did you overclock it (software or through BIOS) and what exactly did you do to it to achieve the overclock?
It's unlikely that you permanently destroyed any hardware, though it IS possible.

I doubt he has wrecked it..PC's shut down if the CPU overheats as it's preset in the Bios tho it can be changed manually as most of us are aware.

A current Intel CPU will O/C it's butt off tho if this has not booted at 4ghz it sounds like a pretty shit chip as most 2500/2600 sandybridges have no problems hitting 4ghz on stock cooling and voltages. My i7 930 runs at 4ghz on stock air tho I have watercooled it now.

Only issue that I can see if it's intel is not disabling HT before posting 4ghz and then also theres the ratios so what speed did the ram hit when the CPU was at 4ghz?

Mate as people have said above you need to have some idea what you are doing prior to starting to overclock. theres more to it then meets the eye so yes google is your friend BUT don't take everything you read as gospel..plenty of I know everything's online that in fact know SFA.

PS. if you do get around to Overclocking again then do it in your BIOS..software overclocking is just plain bs...asking for trouble imo.
