You hear a few kids talking about overclocking their computers to make them run faster.What exactly does overclocking mean? And what is it that you should do for your computer?

The laptop is relatively slow, and you want to overclock it if you think that’s ok (and if it helps you).

The answer “Should I overclock the computer or not”

In short, you were overclocking means running your computer’s CPU, video card, and/or RAM at a faster clock speed than the device speed.

Overclocking any device makes it run faster, and if done right then, the speed boost can be significant.

However, the above is said to be, overclocking is challenging and dangerous for those who don’t know what they’re doing, for the following reasons:

1 – Overclocking any device will cause the device to operate at a higher temperature than the active one due to the faster clock speed. The quicker the device works, the more heat it will generate.

If additional and additional cooling methods are not used, the device may overheat and not function correctly. And in some cases, the device can melt or cause a fire!

In a way, overclocking a computer is like running a car engine with RPM exceeding the highest RPM considered safe by the manufacturer. You can lean on the gas pedal and turn almost any passenger car into a screaming demon, but you can blow the engine in the process.

2 – Even when advanced cooling methods are in place (and efficient), overclocking devices can still be unreliable, causing the machine to generate random errors or even freeze the machine count. This is a problem you didn’t want.

Now that the overclocking basics are out of the way, I’ll answer your question about whether you should overclock your computer or not. Well, the short answer to that question is no.

I do not recommend overclocking any machine unless it is a desktop and you understand overclocking and overclocking and doing it safely.

Furthermore, I do not recommend overclocking laptops because their design pretty much prevents the addition or enhancement of cooling devices.

And finally, I will say this.

There are a lot of people who disagree with my opinion on overclocking, and that is true.

But these people have a lot of experience with computer hardware. They know which specific devices can be safely overclocked and how to safely and effectively overclock them.


As for a laptop, you shouldn’t try to do that. As with a desktop PC, you can overclock because there are many enhanced cooling methods.
