I want to overclock my cpu. Here is an short description of my system. It is Intel Core i7 950 on Intel based motherboard and a cpu cooler by Cooler Master. Now I want the things which will happen to my cpu if I overclock it on a air cooling system. I heard that for this you need a good liquid cooling support. And if I do not have that then what can be consequences. I am not going to overclock my system under extreme conditions. What are major damages that can cause to my cpu. Basically everything is fine in my system except the cooler. And I had found liquid cooling as a very messy thing which I do not afford to buy simply. Rather what can be the limited frequency that I can try out on my system.
