This question already has an answer here:
I want to overclock my Pi to improve performance, while still not sacrificing the warranty. Yes they're cheap, but I still want to preserve the warranty. I have seen blog posts on RPi's website about a new "turbo mode," but yet I haven't quite found out how to do that. I have seen in a few places that to use
raspi-config utility to configure the turbo mode.
So when I open the utility, it warns me about the risk of overclocking. If this was meant to be a way to overclock safely, then why all the warnings? And then when I launch it, there is only one labeled "turbo mode." It seems very confusing that they would do this.
So how do I do it without voiding my warranty? Also, when configuring it, is if it boots up or not a good indication of if it goes too high, or should I also perform some kind of test to ensure that it isn't making mistakes?
