For some time now, LG had trouble marketing the G6. This struggle primarily comes from its price tag. In other words, it was simply too expensive for most. This is true especially when you look at its processor. The G6 makes use of Qualcomm. While powerful, it simply does not have the same level of longevity that other phones in its price range have.

However, G6 has since recognized the problem and adjusted the market value. That minimal adjustment makes all the difference as it becomes a much more practical option.

Why Buy an Unlocked Phone?

It seems many consumers are unaware that they have the option to buy an unlocked phone. Buying unlocked usually entails purchasing the phone itself without the SIM. Basically, it just means that you are not contractually obligated to use a particular mobile operator.

This is because most of these mobile operators will try to squeeze every ounce of profit from that contract. Aside from the costs of the phone itself, you will be charged a lot more. Make sure to do yourself a favor if you can buy an unlocked phone upfront.

Basic Guide to Overclocking Your Computer

If you are serious about getting the best possible performance from your computer, then you should seriously consider trying your hand in overclocking. Basically, it is a means to push your PC past the specified peak performance. Needless to say, this is a whole lot cheaper than buying hardware upgrades. However, it does have its own set of risks.

This article seeks to help readers overclock their system safely and easily. It provides an easy-to-follow guide so that you can go about it in the best way possible.

Safety Reminders

Before anything else, readers should know that modifying the basic components of your computer may void your warranty. It is also highly unlikely that you will be able to get it replaced if there has been any physical damage caused by overclocking.

That being said, you may need to take extra precautions. For instance, make sure that you have a system-monitoring software that can keep track of all your adjustments. You should also make sure that the PC case and its components are kept in the coolest possible state as the extra power created by overclocking can create more heat. Adding air-cooling equipment is highly advisable.

Overclocking the PC’s CPU

Before anything else, it is vital that readers understand how the advertised speed of their processor is calculated. It is rather simple, really. All you need to do is take the base clock rate and multiply it by the multiplier. If you wish to enhance the performance level of your CPU, you need to find a way to increase one of these two elements.

That being said, you can use any of the standard processors and enhance their performance. However, it would be better if you have an unlocked CPU as these processors offer more multipliers and more room for adjustments. The AMD’s Black Edition processors as well as Intel’s ‘K’ series and their Extreme Edition, would be great for this purpose.

Overclocking Example

To give you a better idea of how it works, take a look at a few examples. First, we overclocked an Intel Core i7-2600K CPU. Initially, this processor had a base clock rate of 99.8MHz. By adjusting the multiplier and setting it at 35, the CPU is now able to run at a base speed of 3.4GHz.

To do this, we simply modified the multiplier by accessing the Performance settings in the Bios. This is pretty straightforward. First, boot into the Bios. Once there, increase the CPU multiplier number. Save your setting and boot into Windows. If no error messages appear or stall during the restart process, then you should be in the clear.

Now, you will need to confirm that your settings are holding. Launch your diagnostic tool and take a look at the CPU tab. Pay attention to the value being shown under ‘Core Speed and Multiplier’.

Readers need to understand that overclocking is a great way to increase performance and maximize your hardware potential. However, before you proceed, it is vital that you know what you are doing. Follow the guide above and you should have no trouble.
