hope you understand what im goin trough, My money is exact for my needs. I have to pay for my studies and I have to pay for almost everything except the house cuz im living with my dad...and he is going to let me go when i turn 18 next may. so there you have it! Im on my own. that's real life for ya.
I realise that; people who do it to show off are even worse.
My point is; overclocking will lower the life of a Processor or anything else; and although it will speed up the computer it could just break in a day, an hour, a year, or a hundred years. Anything wrong with that thing at the beginning will make the continued success of the item even less likely. Then, these people who know nothing about computers, will likely send it back and blame the manurfacturer. And then that company has to pay for the ideocy of that person.
I realise its cheaper; it just doesn't seem, to me, the right thing to do for some reason - I have no idea why.
