The overclocking of the microprocessor
How much can overclockearse a mike?
It depends on the mike. No, it is not an only one way of "escaquearme" of answering, it is a reality: every mike is a world, and it is different from all the rest. Even two mikes of the same model, of the same factory and even of the same series they can have different tolerance to the overclocking, and there is no way of knowing it beforehand.
Nevertheless, yes a few indications can happen:
To what it is possible to add that if for what he looks is to buy a new computer to do overclocking (although no guarantee will cover the possible damages), I bought the most rapid memory and of better mark that could find; if it is PC133, it will be better if it is capable of reaching CAS 2. At the time of doing overclocking or of be updating, he will be grateful for it.
As we were saying that it already does a few pages, the overclocking, successfully or not, it ALWAYS produces heat. This heat is one of the principal enemies of any electronic device, therefore we owe to deal with eliminating it of our system. Very few mikes are capable of supporting 70ºC in a continuous way without becoming terribly unstable or starting "to be burned".
First we must refresh the component in question, in general the mike, although the graphic card also can warm enough. For it, a heat spendthrift exists on the mike, which absorbs the heat for his surface and expels it, helped by a fan to prevent from stagnating this warm air close to the mike.
Since it is logical, the major are the spendthrift and the fan, the better. There exist fans that allow to control his speed of rotation or the temperature of the spendthrift with whom they are in contact, what is something very important. It is not strange at all that a standard fan, which they are usually of a quite mediocre quality, remains clogged without warning and fries the mike (one of the motives for which it is not necessary to make a computer alone overclockeado up to knowing if it works well to 100 %).
Other devices that they can help very much in an overclocking are the cells Peltier. These curious devices are a few plates that, on having been crossed by the electric current, do that one of his faces cools down enough, while other one warms up (also enough, for what in this face there must keep on placing a spendthrift and a fan). These devices are very effective, but the bad thing is that they are expensive, they consume a lot of electrical potency and are difficult to find in Spain.
Apart from the shops of electronics, where fans and quality spendthrifts can be (cells Peltier in less cases), one of the best places to look for these devices is Internet. It is enough to happen for Yahoo or Altavista and to mess "cpu to cosmell" to find a series of web sites where they sell all kinds of material at good price. Two examples of these places are www.3dfxcool.com or www.computernerd.com
Also accessories as silicone sell termoconductora so that the mike and the spendthrift do a good contact, fans for graphic cards, fans for hard disk... And in some cases, up to "kits" for refrigeration for liquid, with radiator, compressor and the whole necessary paraphernalia.
Any way be which be the method to refresh the fan, it will not serve as anything if we do not expel the heat on the outside from the casing of the computer. Bear in mind that the spendthrift and the fan do not do that the heat disappears, only they move it of place, but so harmful it is close to the mike as accumulating inside the casing without being able to go out...
So that the refrigeration is perfect, the ideal thing is to have a fan that introduces cold air in the casing (although the air of Madrid in summer is distant from being very much a cold, perhaps I needed to install air conditioning) and other who expels it. In a normal team, the power supply usually extracts the warm air, but there is no usually an entry fan. So it will not be any foolery to buy a fan and to install it in the frontal part of our computer, where generally already there are a few augers prepared for a fan of 8x8 cm.
In any case, bear in mind two points: one, which the warm air raises, so the air exit must be above (NEVER PLACED under the entry of cold air); and two, that there exist few so effective and cheap ventilation schemes like opening the casing of the computer. It is not very nice (good, there are tastes for everything), but it works very well.
