Overclocking, techniques for increasing your computer's performance




More about cooling


Below are some cooling systems for different parts of the computer. 
It is not essential to make changes if you only raise the frequency of the microprocessor slightly, but it is a good idea in those cases where the temperature rises dangerously.
You could, similarly, install additional ventilation in other parts or components of the PC.

Coolers for microprocessor


These coolers are in contact with the microprocessor. When overclocking, it is an idea to replace this part. It comprises the radiator (usually made of aluminium) and the fan. Choose a larger radiator that has a fan with greater air extraction ability.

Coolers format card

These components are easily fitted in one of the free slots (where ISA, PCI or AGP cards go).
This is advisable when you have cards that generate a lot of heat. In the picture on the right you can see a set of fans placed on top of the cards.

If you want to lower the operating temperature of the hard disk and so prolong its useful life, you can install some of these models.

Coolers grafic cards

There is a wide range of coolers available for the graphics card chip. Aluminium dissipators are also available for these cards’ memory.
