dont use more than a pound or two of pressure plugging anything in

make sure what you buy is compatible

All i can suggest is make sure you get out there and learn. If your into computers, along with OC. Start reading about computer components. Learn how common computer components work, and what they do. Thats the very basic, you also want to be aware with specs. Such as how fast computer entities work.

I personally wouldent get into OC, intil you learn alot about hardware.
Finished With TF.
