I know that software-based overclocking is a bad idea - the problem is I am in a bit of a predicament. I am busy with an AI project that is due soon.
I am busy running some very CPU intensive simulations and need to get these done faster than the expected finishing time. These simulations cannot be stopped or resumed, so I absolutely cannot reset my PC. I am hoping to be able to use a software-based overclocking solution to speed up the simulations; at the same time I cannot afford to have the PC hang from the software overclocking.
Here is a screenshot from Core Temp:
