What is "overclocking" the processor and can I do it?

Last Updated: Mar 16, 2016 12:33AM EDT
Overclocking is the act of speeding up the microprocessor beyond what the manufacturer intended. Many people choose to do this in order to make their devices run faster. There are drawbacks, however, and in some cases it can drain battery life and wear out the processor faster than usual. The factory Nook processor speed is set at 800MHz. You can overclock using the N2A Card to 1200MHz if you wish. However, N2A Cards will not assume responsibility for any damage that this may cause to your Nook.

To overclock your processor, first click on the menu button from your home screen.

Choose "Settings" and then "CyanogenMod settings."

Press "Performance."

A warning message will pop up. Read it and press "OK."

Tap "CPU Settings."

On this screen, you can change the "Min CPU frequency" and "Max CPU frequency" to what you want.

You have now changed your processor speed. If you want this speed to stay set even after rebooting your device, make sure the "Start on boot" box is checked.

Remember, you do this at your own risk.
