OVERCLOCKING -the unique customization of process speed within a computer – is available at extra cost for certain PCs upon request. Due to the nature of overclocking, permanent and devastating damage can be done to a PC if not done by a professional! This includes risks such as: Permanent data loss, fire, electrocution, and destruction of the internal parts of the PC. Because of this, First Option will only warranty overclocking performed by its own technicians. In order to ensure proper and safe function of an overclocked PC a warranty sticker will be placed on the case and a BIOS password will be put on any overclocked First Option custom PCs, meaning you will not be able to adjust these settings yourself. First Option will be happy to leave off the password and warranty sticker for you, however, warranty will be void on the PC. Overclocking is a GREAT way to get maximum performance and longevity out of your PC. It is the equivalent of fine-tuning a NASCAR or Formula 1 racecar. But the same principles apply. If the fine-tuning is done incorrectly on those vehicles, the results can be catastrophic. Please leave it to a First Option professional.
