What is Overclocking? Why do we need Overclocking to raise the performance of smart phone and computer?

Hello everyone. Welcome to FTT blog. Dear readers, with the best wishes I am starting today's article about the importance, advantages and disadvantages of overclocking in computer, smartphone or tablet.


When you purchase any hardware or electronics device, since then you are the owner of that. Safety warning does not matter, what company has given for the device. You can customize the device for your benefit. Today's article is about computer and smartphone. After watching the title of the article, I think you have predicted, what I am going to discuss today. Computer or smartphone is the perfect combination of a lot of software and hardware. Software and hardware are dependent on each other. Software is built to run the hardware. However, most of the hardware give less performance than their capability. The software are being set up to run the hardware and the main objective of the software is to ensure that the device can be used for a long time. If you are a skilled user, then you can make your device faster by making your hardware more productive. Basically, this is simply called overclocking. As a result of overclocking, performances of the device increases much more.

What is Overclocking?

I have discussed about the meaning of overclocking a little bit earlier in this article. Now, I will discuss about it in detail. Overclocking is the process to change the system settings, by which the whole system and every instrument run faster than the conditions made by the manufacturer. Usually, we have to do overclocking of two components to increase the performance of the device. One of these two is the Central Processing Unit (CPU) and the other is the Random Access Memory (RAM/physical memory). I think you are smiling and thinking that what will be left after doing overclocking of these two. However, let's know about the overclocking of these two. There will be the discussion of the advantages and disadvantages also.

Overclocking of Central Processing Unit (CPU)

Each CPU has something in their core, which is called 'Front Side Bus Speed'. It is the base of the external frequency, which runs all parts of the motherboard. There is a multiplier in every CPU, which increases the internal frequency multiple times, so that it can adjust the time accurately with the rest of the system. The more the multiplier frequency will increase, the higher the Front Side Bus Speed will and device performance will be better. We usually increase the multiplier by overclocking and the Front Side Bus Speed increases as well. As a result, CPU starts to receive more electricity because of the increased frequency and the voltage also increases a little bit to run the CPU in a stable way.

Overclocking of physical memory (RAM)

The voltage will be needed to increase for doing overclocking of physical memory (RAM), so that it can automatically get higher frequency levels. While doing overclocking of the RAM, you have to bear in mind one thing that if you do too much overclocking, then your RAM will be unstable and the system will stop working. However, any kind of control or change of CPU and RAM can be done from BIOS. At the present time, there are given the system of modifying the extreme level hardware by software.

Users will be able to do overclocking of graphics card as well as RAM. As a result, a significant change will come to their gaming experience.The graphics card has two parts. One is core frequency and another is memory frequency. Overclocking can be done fairly in high quality graphics card by using software.

Advantages of Overclocking

Before deciding to do overclocking in computer or mobile phone, you should have adequate knowledge about the advantages and disadvantages of overclocking, otherwise you will not be able to answer yourself that why you have done overclocking. However, the main and most important advantage of overclocking is the unusual increased performance. As a result of overclocking, your system will be faster and smother that ever. As a result, you can run heavy software very smoothly and nicely. Above all, if you want to use all the power of the system, then you must do overclocking.

Disadvantages of Overclocking

We all know that if we want to get something, then we will lose something. There are a thing called side effects that may not be new to us. However, let's talk a little about the problems of overclocking. After doing overclocking, each component will create a lot more heat. So, a little extra attention should be on the cooling system of the device. Moreover, as you will need to change the settings, so you need to pay attention to the system. You should pay attention to the system so that system remains stable. Moreover, overclocking is overcoming the settings of the parts, which was allocated by the manufacturer. In this case, you should be sure that your product warranty will be cancelled. Moreover, as a result of overclocking, your parts can be permanently lost.

Who want to do overclocking in the mobile phone, you have to keep in mind that as a result of overclocking, the charge of the phone will end very quickly. Moreover, as the phone has no external cooling system, so the device may be useless for life after becoming too hot.

Are you undecided of doing Overclocking?

Whether you will do overclocking or not, it is dependent on your personal needs. In fact, the need of doing overclocking will depend on the kind of work you do. It does not make sense to do overclocking without any cause because most of the time, we can not use the allocated advantages of the system. Then, what will we do after doing overclocking? If you are a gamer or do graphics related work and certainly you are not satisfied with the facilities provided by the system, then you can do overclocking.

Last Word

We have come to the end of the article. Who have realized the necessity of doing overclocking, you can do overclocking from the BIOS settings of your computer.
