Default Newbie OC question

Sorry, if this may seem like silly questions, but Im working on learning how to OC... When you OC, do you OC your CPU, RAM and Video card seperatly? Or do you only OC your CPU? In other words...What all can you OC on your computer and are they done seperatly?

When you raise the System Bus (HTT), it in turn raises the speed of the CPU as well as the memory, since both of their speeds are derived from the System Bus. There is no way of overclocking your CPU and Memory seperately, however there is a way to set a ratio of your system bus and memory so that for every 6MHz of the HTT (System Bus) your memory runs at 5 MHz. So if your HTT is 240, and your CPU multiplier is at 10, and your memory is running on a 6:5 divider, then your Processor speed would be (240 x 10 = 2400MHz, 2.4GHz), and your memory speed would be (240 x5 /6 = 200Mhz) or in other words...stock speed.

As for the video card, that is totally seperate. For overclocking a video card, you literally more a bar left and right and then all you have to do is check for stability, lol.

Eh, If you're a beginner, I don't recommend reading the sticky here. Its much too complicated for beginners. Instead, let me direct you to the guides from which I learned overclocking, read them in the order I post them;

This one is for both Intels and Athlon 64s, so theres some stuff that pertains to both.

This explains how Athlon 64s work.

And when you fell you're ready to overclock, this one.

Don't read one ahead of another, or else you won't understand what they're talking about.
