Remember: Overclocking can result in damage 

Overclocking is method triggering main processor or graphics controller, but systems such as RAM are also involved in this process which leads to an increase in power consumption and fan noise. Due to overclocking many manufacturers gives the extra functionality of safety to deal with operating conditions outside the control of manufacturers. The disadvantage of overclocking your Intel processor is overheating and more power usage. Ultimately, heating will result in decreasing the life span of your CPU.

Since Overclocking is not possible on your Razer Blade Pro we will be using Intel Turbo Boost technology to improve the performance.

What is Intel Turbo Boost Technology?

  • Intel Turbo Boost Technology is the feature in Intel’s processors which raises the operating frequency whenever there is high demanding task running.
  • Furthermore, the feature accelerates the frequency of the processor when the operating system demands high performance.
  • The Turbo boost concept can also be called as “Dynamic Overclocking”.
  • This feature is enabled in the processors including Core i5, i7, i9, and Celeron processors.

Remember: Overclocking is never a safe process while turbo boost is always safe.
