Overclocking on the Pi

We have already talked about this twice on this blog. The Wikipediaopen in new window explain as the process of making a computer or component operate faster than the clock frequency specified by the manufacturer by modifying system parameters.

It is a fascinating world that not all people make a practice. The Raspberry Pi Foundation allows us to implement a default oc setting from the application raspi-config.

In my case I always have the Raspi overclocked to 950 Mhz, but I have two sinks and allows me some peace of mind.

Today I read in the forums that the user JoJo_ReloadeD has come to put the CPU to 1133 Mhz with this same system.


Curious detailed heat released in the power connector.

The values in the config.txt file are:

over_voltage=12 # Although in theory the maximum value is 8, 12 also works ;)

I put the link to read the thread if you are interested. Have you ever tried to overclock your Pi in extremis?
