What is Overclocking?
Overclocking is the process of speeding up or increasing the clock speed than official efficiency provided by Manufacturer. In other words, overclocking is the method of configuring the hardware components to obtain extra utility and performance than the default. We have to take many precautions while overclocking any device.

Benefits of Overclocking
Overclocking is done to increase the efficiency and performance of CPU and GPU.
Demerits of Overclocking
The definition of overclocking itself defines that it is an additional requirement from the CPU and GPU than provided from the manufacturer. The process is very risky and the result could be losing the device.
Why overclocking is very dangerous?
Overclocking is a very heavy process which triggers main processor or graphics controller where systems such as RAM are also involved. This process goes very heavy resulting in more power consumption, fan noise and increases th amount of heat produced by your ASIC miners. ASIC miners are very efficient but they lack in cooling, mining with ASIC miner requires more power due to this heat increases. After overclocking it may not be possible for Antminer to handle that amount of heat and may result in losing your device.
Increase the PSU.
Use External Fans or AC to cool your device while mining.
Increase limited Frequency.
WARNING: OVERCLOCKING CAN VOID YOUR WARRANTY
Currently, overclocking Obelisk SC1 Immersion is not possible but the procedure will be available soon, check back later.
