Hello everyone! I have heard very cool stuff about this forum and the kindly people here, who help little noobies like me to overclock theire PC.
I know little about overclock and need help from you masters to understand what are the optimal values for overclock that i can use on my CPU without damaging or shorten my cpu and mainboard life. I've searched a lot in google about my cpu or motherboard overclock capabilities and i found some stuff but every pc have different components, so i think the best way to find the right numbers is to write down my full PC specifications and let the proffesionals do theire job I have heard that my motherboard is not bad for overclock becouse of his digi power design, advanced V8 + 2 Power phase design and cpu support up to 140W and i think my is 95W.
Also do you think its safe to try and unlock 4th core and overclock cpu or just overclock without unlocking... im fine with both ways, becouse as i said i don't want to squeeze it too much ( afraid of damaging ). I just can share with you that i clicked the option in bios to unlock 4th core but my windows dont want to boot. I know it may require a bit voltage up but i have no idea how much so i didnt touch anything at all and turned back the option.
I want to tank everyone here who can give me a hand, im looking for this from too long...
