Ive heard people say that when overclocking, it is best to overclock a bit, then, let it sit, before overclocking higher. Their argument was that it allowed the CPU to get used to higher speeds, and going slowly would aid in final overclocability, and help the CPU to last longer.
Does anyone know if this is true, or if it just started to keep people from overclocking till their CPU melts?
