I am afraid to overclock. I have RetroPie and after recently getting some new N64 controllers, decided to play good old Mario Kart 64. When playing with four players or when playing more hardware intensive games, I noticed really bad frame drops, making the game unplayable most of the time. There's an official RetroPie article on optimizing for N64 (https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Se ... intendo-64) and it recommended that I overclock. I was wondering, will it kill my Raspberry Pi or harm it to have the following settings?
I was also wondering if changing the CPU-Governor to performance mode will harm or screw up my Raspberry Pi. Because technology dies when I touch it I've been working very hard to get my Raspberry Pi 3 Model B to work and I've actually been able to have it function for a whole month so I don't want to mess it up now so overclocking just freaks me out a little.
EDIT: I have two heatsinks and I'm 99% sure they're using the thermal adhesive stuff. I also have one of the recommended power supplies that's listed on the link in my post (I think that's the right link...). I'm considering purchasing a fan and thanks for the suggestion to copy my setup onto a backup card because I'll most likely do it.
