  1. Hey i read the post you had on the e6700 series chipset and i was wondering if i were to follow the same overclocking instructions that you had for that chip if it would work correctly for me?? here is the link to the article.

    I am fairly new to overclocking, have done tons of research, and gotten different answeres and misconceptions on OCing. A question that i have never really gotten a clear answer on is,Does overclocking reduce the longevity of the processor tremendeously?

    And is there a smiliar guide to the link above specific for my processor

    Do you have a stock cooler?

    First off it reduces the CPU life depending on your coller, but I think in 10-15 years the cpu will be obsolete?

    What motherboard do you have?
    Is your computer a custom build, or is it an OEM like Dell, GateWay, HP, etc?
    What ram do you have?
    What PSU do you have?

    What's the point of overclocking this cpu? I could see a less powerful one, but that will handle pretty much anything you throw at it.
