Overclocking causes melting?

  1. Well, I've been reading up on overclocking and i've heard you need a pretty good cooling system to overclock parts. Like if you overclock it will overheat to such an extent that it melts? not sure if this is true but just checking with you guys.

    No this should not happen! I guess anything is possible but realistically nothing should melt in a modern computer. If the cooling is inadequate the system will just crash a lot, restart or shutdown constantly. Running at high temperatures is not a good thing and will certainly kill something eventually.
