    You're welcome.

    Well, I kept reading people saying things about it so reckoned it would be a good idea to pop this in... us saying "Don't" wasn't necessarily getting through to everyone.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    I'm along with tons of others out there who are OCing in windows 8 and never have a problem. First thing with OCing is to know what you're doing when trying to OC, this involves research and hitting up any one you know with experience in OCing.

    I've got my CPU over clocked from 3.4 mhz to 4.0 mhz, I have my RAM OC to to 1066 (DDR2), I have my GPU OC. My system is running stable and temps are well with in the tolerance levels, and on the low temp side to boot.

    Cool Re: Don't Overclock Windows8

    Maybe you are a fire eater, or maybe you juggle Chain Saws while they are running, but do you really feel like it's a good idea to suggest that activity for other people?

    I've been an Electronics Tech/ Computer Tech for over 40 years and one inarguable FACT is that Heat Kills electronics. If that were not so, Computer manufacturers could save a fortune by just NOT adding cooling fans to their products.

    Even a computer or other electronic circuitry running at prescribed speeds will generate enough heat to demand some kind of Cooling. I've fought the battle against HEAT, my entire 43 years of professional life.

    So, deliberately forcing any electronic circuit to generate more heat than it was designed to dissipate, is unadvised at best and criminal at its worse.

    So lets not juggle chain saws. Run your PC at its prescribed speed.
    If you want more performance, get it elsewhere, like I do, by optimizing Windows. There are many 'speed secrets' built into Windows (all versions) by its designers and programmers.

    I use the built in "Speed Secrets" in Windows to even Double its performance, above what you get right out of the store. And, I don't overheat the PC in the process.

    Cheers mates!
