New to Overclocking, any help is awsome
I have been thru many boards and tons of time on overclocking a system that i am ready to jump off a bridge. I have built computers for several years now including working at a Mom and Pop store. I know what I am doing in that regards, My question to everyone now is in the realm of overclocking..
My system I have now i built a few months ago and I am now interested in overclocking it just a little bit for now. I dont know how to put the kewl links in so I will do my best to describe my system.
All parts I got from Newegg.com sooo.and sorry for my cut and paste but I want to get as much info to you all as I can.
