Hey everyone,

Super quick question here. Right now, I have an AMD FX-8350 8 core 4gHz CPU. It's served me fine for these past few years, but it's getting a little dated. I want to invest in a new CPU eventually, but for now, I was considering overclocking it. My motherboard has a switch to do so (which, if I understand correctly, means I just flip the switch).

My only question is if this will be dangerous for my PC - or my CPU - in any way.

Things that OC depends on: Motherboard, Cooling (Cpu and case) and PSU to some extent.
Dangerous ? Yes if all of those components are not up to it.
