Overclockable PC Systems at Overclockers UK
No matter if you are a die-hard gamer, a graphic designer, or you simply want to get the most out of your system, overclocking will greatly improve the performance of your PC. Overclocking is the process of pushing a computer component beyond the default factory speed. This typically refers to the CPU, although in some cases the GPU or even RAM may also be overclocked. An overclocked PC can, therefore, reach much higher levels of performance than it would otherwise be able to achieve. Whilst overclocking does increase heat emissions and is demanding on your power supply, the practice is now safer and more established than it has been in the past, and when done properly, it yields significant stable speed gains.
How is a PC overclocked?
The speed of a CPU is determined largely by its internal clock speed, measured in GHz, which is set at a certain level by the manufacturer, according to each model. The internal clock speed is derived from the CPU’s base clock rate (BCLK), the benchmark timekeeper of a PC, which is multiplied by a certain number, known as the CPU multiplier. The resulting internal clock speed determines how many operations the processor can complete per second. However, because of variation in production, the factory standard speed is set to the lowest common-speed denominator, to ensure a larger percentage of stable products. This means that individual units are highly likely to be capable of running much faster, a fact that overclocking exploits. An overclocked computer, then, is one where either the base clock rate, CPU multiplier, or even voltage has been manually altered in order to reach the processor’s full potential, without overheating and damaging components.
What are the Benefits of an Overclockable PC?
The benefits of an overclockable system fall broadly into two related categories: processing speed and value for money. Graphics applications, such as image and video rendering, and gaming particularly resource intensive, demanding high-levels of activity from the processor. An overclocked PC is much better placed to meet these demands because it’s able to process more tasks per second. Because of this, you receive more value for money in terms of performance; the need to invest in more expensive hardware is reduced simply by optimising the potential of your existing components.
