Overclock CPU

Can I Overclock my CPU from Linux?
In Windows I Can use Sysclock
but is there anything in linux that can
increase the clock speed of the CPU.

is “Sysclock” a Window’s application?

i don’t think so…i think setting the system clock (aka: sysclock) is
easily done in the BIOS and has nothing at all to do with Windows at
all…in fact it MUST be done before Windows (or Linux) boots…so,
yes you can fry your chip and then try to run most any OS…

but i could be mistaken since i think it is silly to take the chance
of burning up up a chip for a 10 to 25 % increase in chip speed…just
buy a faster chip…it will be cheaper in the long run by runing
cooler and lasting longer…

on the other hand: it is your money and you chip, toast it if you
please…

ISTR reading somewhere that overclocking wasn’t recommended for Linux on the
basis that Linux pushed a CPU to it’s limits whereas Windoze didn’t so
overclocking a CPu for Windoze was a way of trying to get the best of a bad
job :wink:
