  1. someone told me that if you overclock your cpu that the company or store can find out by a ultra violent light is this true?

    My personal opion what is the guy on? LOL no m8

    My personal opion possibly if they took the cpu apart, but it would have to be am intel. But I don't think with an UV light.

    The only things that can be seen are burn marks or chips on the die. Burns come from too much voltage and heat, the chips come from improper installation.

    I dont think they can see by UV light but I'm sure they can and as you are aware, oc'ing voids your warranty.
