Sooner or later, every computer user runs into the problem of the computer not being able to perform well enough to solve the tasks it needs to. Even after you have optimized the computer’s hardware and software from all sides, there still comes a point where your only choice seems to be to either modernize your system or buy a new computer altogether. However, there is still one more reserve that you can call on—using acceleration for the components of your computer, which will allow them to realize some hidden potential capabilities while increasing the performance of the system.

We must note here that overclocking modes can be used both as a means of finding out the potential of the technology and architecture that you use, and as a tool for predicting their further development. And for a few enthusiasts, this mode can be an absorbing pastime and a means of proving oneself.

Using overclocking modes has won adherents not only among users, but also among large computer companies. The leading hardware and software producers provide for support of overclocking modes. Choosing these tools and setting the optimal mode to allow you to fulfill the potential of the components are not easy tasks.

Various solutions to these problems are what we will examine in this book. In it, we will list particular Features of using processors, memory, video adapters, hard drives, etc., both in moderate and extreme modes, while trying to obtain a substantial rise in performance for both old computers and computers that contain much more modern components.
