When you ask anyone about computers, usually their fantasy is of a super fast computer that doesnt ever stall or crash. Unfortunately for us, that still remains a fantasy. In our world today we have good computers but even our good computers continue to stall, hang, crash and work extremely slow. Since the invention of computers, computers have only gotten more and more popular.
Almost everyone uses a computer for work. Computers, I insist are no longer considered as luxury, they come under the bracket of necessity. And after the discovery of internet, their use has only become even more evident and needed. Like mentioned above, we all crave for a faster machine, no matter which model we buy, we always want a higher version or at least dream of a higher version and better speed. Now fortunately for us we have the process of overclocking which can help our old computers to work fast.
Thanks to this process we can improve the speed of our otherwise very slow computer. Yes if our computers are overclocked, they will perform much faster, their speed will increase, now that is definitely beneficial for anyone who owns a computer. In fact this process can be conducted even on an old computer and you can still expect to see good results. Overclocking your computer will give you an idea of how a higher version of your computer will function. In fact you can first test it on your computer and if the higher version seems to perform well, later you can go ahead and buy it. Yes, overclocking of your computer can prove to be very beneficial for you!
On the other hand, if overclocking of your computer goes wrong, it could lead to the killing of many components in your computer which will then ultimately lead to the breaking down of your computer with no hope of its resurrection. So instead of gaining speed, you may wind up loosing your computer and all its functioning altogether.
Also, often during this process data is damaged, in fact it happens so subtly that you have no clue that your data is being damaged. It also decreases the life span of your processor by a considerable amount.
Though overclocking gives you a peek into the higher version of your computer, it is not always advisable because sometimes you land up spending a considerable amount of money on overclocking. Overclocking involves generation of heat and maintaining its coolness often requires cooling equipment which may cost a lot, so it turns out to be as expensive as an upgrade.
