What CPU is More Stable When Over-Clocked What CPU is more stable when over-clocked That is a good question and that is what got me interested in this project One day a couple years back I got a relatively old computer and I was upset at how slow it was and decided to find out if it was possible to make it go faster For a long time I looked and did not see anything on speeding up the computer and then one day I came across it It was called over-clocking the word caught my eye and I decided to check it out Over-clocking looked like a complicated process but I was willing to check it out There were terms in the book and web pages like voltage multiplier bus speed clock speed jumpers and BIOS These words were confusing so I looked them up The voltage is the amount of electricity flowing to the CPU at any given time The typical voltage is usually between 3 and 5 volts depending on the CPU and the task The multiplier was the number that the bus speed was multiplied to in order to find out the CPU speed or clock speed The multiplier is also a type of governor like on an engine that limits the speed so as not to put out too much power When you over-clock a CPU you are essentially over-riding the multipliers original setting by increasing it to get a higher clock speed To increase or decrease the multiplier you have to use jumpers on the motherboard or electronic switches in the BIOS Over-clocking to increase something past its normal speed at which it runs Over-clocking a Central Processing Unit CPU means to speed up the bus speed or the clock speed past its original setting People often over-clock a CPU to increase the system performance at very little cost Most of the time you only need to
