When one hears “be quiet!”; one thinks of an imperative – absolutely necessary or required; unavoidable: It is imperative that we keep the noise down. When considering the German vernacular; there is no real work around to this, it will be quiet. It is akin to yelling at a noisy case fan to cease and desist all annoying and unnecessary audible emissions! It is not a matter of becoming silent it is a matter of toning it down, at all costs, and keeping it quiet (Making little or no noise).

From the be quiet! site:

3 Step Overclocking Guide – Clarkdale (Miahallen)

April 22, 2013 in CPU, Featured, Gaming, Guides, Intel, Motherboards & Chipsets, Overclocking, PC

Introduction

So many users are searching around the net these days looking for advice on how to overclock their new systems but don’t know where to start. To help everyone out, I decided a how-to guide was in order. Searching around forums can be confusing and intimidating. There are so many people willing to give advice, but who can you trust? It’s hard to know, and I’ve seen many users sent on wild goose chases because they are following advice that doesn’t solve or even address their specific problem. I’ve also seen too much trial and error overclocking, unless you get lucky it tends to be far too time consuming a frustrating. What I’ve attempted to do is create a very simple three step guide for overclocking Clarkdale based CPUs. If you want to continue searching out other opinions, please consider each suggestion with caution. Some will undoubtedly be great, some will not.
