I recenty overclocked my FSB to hell (doubled the mhertz) and my comp isnt getting hot (but it iIS overclocked I can tell the speed differences) what stresses does FSB overcloking have on your computer? Is it worth it?

I guess each of us has to decide if overclocking is worth it. Personally, it's not worth it to me, since I depend on reliable operation of my systems.

Unless you do something crazy, REASONABLY overclocked systems are as stable as standard systems. I'm on my kid's computer right now- a P3 600 running at 800 with an overclocked (133) fsb. Stock fans, never crashes, not one problem at all.

I think the p3 600 was an 800 that was underclocked!


I overclock everything I have touched and have had tremendous success.

I personally would not overclock my computer. However I know alot of gamers who do. To me this is the only benifit that I've noticed.
