ok, so i just got a new pc, and i think about over clocking it, im having a quad core at 2.6ghz and want to overclock it to like 3ghz, is it possible, and what are the risks of over heating? (if i can go higher in ghz, ill get a liquid cooling system) this is my side pc but i wana make able to play cod black ops
A quad core 2.6ghz processor (im assuming c2d) is plenty fast enough to be able to play Black Ops. But how about your graphics card? Thatĺs what is important here.
You definitely do not have 6ghz cores. You might have 6ghz total (which isnĺt how it actually works) but not 6ghz per physical core.
agreed for the blooded part, 6ghz would need a river of cooling
and i tough it wouldn`t hurt to get a .5 ghz up for making it smooter, and fr the gfx car, im actualy looking for one, since black ops isnt out yet, i have plenty of time to look around, i have atm 120$ of budget, and might have some more, but i think ill get like 2gb ram with my gfx card, because i have like 6 atm, and remember this is my side pc, i have and i7 980 in my main pc, and will not overclock it
