Want to increase the performance of your system or phone then OVERCLOCKING is the best way to do it…. It is the best way but not the safest way as your warranty will be void if you Overclock a Machine.  let us learn what exactly Overclocking means and the way to do it….

Overclocking

Overclocking is the process of making a computer or component operate faster than the specified clock frequency by the manufacturer by modifying system parameters. One of the most important techniques is running at a higher clock rate (more clock cycles per second; hence the name “overclocking”), but other parameters, such as CPU multiplier and memory timings, can also be changed and would be considered to be overclocking. Operating voltages may also be changed (increased), which can increase the speed at which operation remains stable. Most overclocking techniques increase power consumption, generating more heat, which must be dispersed if the chip is to remain operational.

 

 

You want the best performance possible from your computer, but you can’t afford any hardware upgrades. No problem–we’ll show you how to safely overclock your existing desktop PC’s CPU, GPU, and RAM and give it an extra shot in the arm.

Safety first! Modifying components like these could void your warranty (though some PC parts are sold specifically for use by overclockers, and their warranties tend to be more lenient). Also, no one will replace equipment that has been physically damaged by overclocking, so make sure that you’re completely comfortable taking your PC’s life into your own hands before you change anything.

It’s important to have system-monitoring software to keep track of your tweaks. CPU-Z is good for tracking your various components’ speeds.

Overclocking Your CPU

The advertised speed of your CPU is calculated by multiplying the base clock rate by a multiplier. To get more performance from your processor, you need to increase one of these two variables. If you don’t have an unlocked processor (Intel’s K-Series and Extreme Edition, or AMD’s Black Edition), you’ll have less flexibility, as unlocked processors offer more multipliers to adjust. But you’ll still be able to get some extra mileage out of your CPU.

With K-Series chips, you can easily modify the multiplier from the ‘Performance’ settings in your BIOS. Just boot into the BIOS, increase the CPU multiplier number by one, save, and boot into Windows.

If this boot doesn’t produce error messages or furious restarting by your machine, you’re on the right path. Check your system specs via CPU-Z to confirm that your settings held-they can be lost if something goes wrong during the tweaking process. On CPU-Z’s ‘CPU’ tab, look at the number under ‘Core Speed and Multiplier’. That number will fluctuate, depending on what your PC is doing from moment to moment.

Overclocking Your Memory

Yes, you can overclock your RAM, too. But make sure you have matching sticks of RAM (same speed, manufacturer, and so on) before you start messing with the memory. It’s much easier (and safer) to buy more memory than to overclock what you have. But if you’ve come this far, “easy” and “safe” probably don’t mean much to you.

First, open up CPU-Z and flip to the ‘SPD’ (Serial Presence Detect) tab to look at your machine’s memory specs. Reboot into the BIOS menu and select the performance menu-most likely labeled ‘Performance’ or ‘Configuration’, depending on your motherboard manufacturer.

Enter the memory configuration menu (it was labeled ‘Memory Overrides’ on our test bed), and disable the default memory profile. Adjust your memory multiplier by selecting a preset overclock option or by typing in the RAM clock speed. Use increments, one or two at a time, that match consumer-grade products (DDR3 RAM is typically sold in increments of 800-1066-1333-1600-1867-2133); save the changes; and exit the BIOS. Stress-test as usual, and consider running memory-testing software such as MemTest.

 

Overclocking a Phone

Mobile phone processors are no different, although they rely on passive cooling, which is to say, heat dissipation through the cell phone case. Often the phone is cleverly designed to get rid of heat, but phones aren’t guaranteed to do so when the processor is running at over capacity.

In most cases you can set upper and lower clock speeds for your phone, and the phone will scale between the two extremes depending on user demands. It’s even possible to under-clock to stretch out battery life, although the phone may be punishingly slow to use.

To overclock an Android phone, you’ll need to install a custom firmware (sometimes referred to as a custom ROM). The chief thing this usually provides is root access to the phone, allowing hardware tweaks, although sometimes getting root access needs to be done manually. Search via Google using your phone model for more information.

Please remember that Overclocking a Machine will terminate its warranty…. HAPPY OVERCLOCKING
