But the likelihood of the stability staying over time is less than at stock or lower than stock speeds.not sure just where this came from. You can be just as stable overclocked as you are at default if youre doing it right.
if you want to talk about longevity we can do that as well, but taking a cpu and overclocking doesn't mean one must give up stability to do so. This is even more apparent with mild overclocks where people aren't even adjusting their voltage and just trying to get a couple hundred MHz for free and don't even raise the vcore.But the likelihood of the stability staying over time is less than at stock or lower than stock speeds.
If you took 100 CPU's and OCed each one, then you took an identical 100 CPU's at stock, then ran both at 100% utilization until failure, which batch do you think will see more failures?
