Default OC Programs

Does anyone use programs to overclock such as CPUID's ClockGen, or do you do all your overclocking in BIOS

Don't use windows based OC'ing programs....get familiar with your BIOS and use that....it's the safest and best way to OC

Plus you can look like an UBER-1337 nerd infront of your friends when you go changing random things....just change the date and time and be like "Yeah....see this was originally a 4 here....I overclocked it to 5" which translates you changing the month from april to may

BIOS is the best way to go

However clockgen can give my board an extra half volt of voltage, so I can use that to get a few more mhz, even though it's a bad idea. This is how I got up to just under 2.7ghz
