If you are not willing to take the chance on overclocking and destroying your hardware, than ocing is not for you.
Agreed.

There are some instances however where it is tried to be made easy for people. Think of it this way. Auto-overclocking : Dell :: Manual-OC'ing:Custom-build computers. Some people would choose a Dell over a custom build because it's just simply easier for their case. Obviously that Dell will never be able to perform as well as a custom build. It's the same case with overclocking. You will NEVER be able to get the degree of OC on auto-overclock than a manual-overclock. However, some people may prefer the easy way out even though the performance advantage is sacrificed.

I agree though. More people should be open to learning more about OC'ing and taking the risk. The advantages can sometimes be ridiculous.

I originally planned out never to overclock. But as I began reading here, I was simply convinced that the performance gains can be insane. Unfortunately, I had already bought a fairly limited OC'ing board. I don't regret it now, but if I could go back, I would considering getting a DFI instead.

I'm actually convinced to a degree. It may be best to get a DFI just incase you decide to overclock later. The only reason I would stick with the MSI is for solid reliability. I don't know how good DFIs will function in the hands of a beginner.

Are you overclocking? And you can get an aftermarket heatsink, no matter what board you have. The DFI is acknowledged as the best board to OC with, and if you are not OCing, it is still killer. Just get the DFI. And so what if it is hard to figure out or not, makes it easier, and better, ot learn stuff. The hardest things are the best to know.
