has anybody overclocked a hard drive like linus tech tips overclocked a fan? i feel like that would be pri-tee cewl
you can't tamper with the insides? dangThere's not really an 'overclock' applicable to an HDD.
You can't make it physically go faster, like you could a fan - nor 'instruct' faster via software, like you could a CPU or GPU.
The best way to have an HDD perform better/faster/smoother is to keep it tidy, defragged etc - and periodic clean OS installs if being used as an OS drive..... nothing particularly special.
10000rpm drives exist(ed), which is essentially what you'd be trying to achieve - but SSDs rendered them near obsolete a long time ago, given the higher costs associated.
