When we open a computer, on the board we find a fan on it.
Underneath that fan is the processor, which is like the brain of the computer.
The reason why the processor has its own fan is because it reaches very high temperatures, depending on the processor model they can exceed 70ºC.
What is overclocking?
Overclocking is a process by which the processor is pushed to its limits to increase its performance. It can also be done on the graphics, in RAM, etc.
What consequences can this have?
The processors hold up to a maximum temperature, and this maximum can be exceeded with overclocking.
We literally burn out the processor if done repeatedly.
To avoid this, the processor must be cooled, if possible with liquid nitrogen. Nitrogen is a gas that liquefies at a temperature of -195,79 ° C (63 K).
For this reason, when handling it, it is important to wear gloves, it is advisable to indicate something long because liquid nitrogen causes burns when in contact with the skin.
My advice, don't overclock for two reasons:
- We load the processor
- Not usually necessary
Here is a video of an overclocking with liquid nitrogen:
