Overclocking... A risky endeavour with great rewards. It is a compromise between longevity and zero-day performance. It may result in higher frame rates or dead components. It is a decision that all PC games have to make. To overclock or not to overclock, that is the question. I personally have seen reasonable and careful overclocking to be something that all PC gamers should do. A carefully calibrated overclock can greatly increase performance while having a small impact on life span. It is temperatures that kill chips, not higher frequencies. As long as the temperatures are low, an overclocked chip will last a long time. I have ran both my CPU and GPU overclocked for almost 2 years and have not encountered any issue. However, that's just my personal experience. What are your opinions on overclocking? Do you partake in it or do you find it too risky?
