Re: Overclocking in BIOS vs. overclocking software

Software overclocking has 2 main problems:

1_It doesnt have alot of options like BIOS
2_It will mostly cause the CPU Voltage to rise alot and will make stability problems.

Re: Overclocking in BIOS vs. overclocking software

depends on ur rig to be honest. In bios OCing, u can tweak timings, voltage, frequency, etc. You're in control of your system, plus its hard coded - meaning ur bios controls the functionality of the system, so when you boot the system is running as commanded by the bios. Bios uses the program to tweak it.. things can go wrong - like your board/cpu draining more juice than required..but I don't think you can do any harm in OCing with software - but I would rely on the hardware controlled device.

Re: Overclocking in BIOS vs. overclocking software

Whenever the option exists, manipulating BIOS settings is the best way to accomplish overclocking. BIOSes on value/low end motherboards and on proprietary systems such as Dells and HPs generally have few to no options available for overclocking. On such systems, there is the potential to overclock through software, though there is not a single piece of software to overclock every board.
