Default Overclocking using the MOBO or a software

I was just wondering would it be better to use software to overclock or just resort to using a switch on the MOBO if your board has that capabilitie.

Software overclock can kill your system a lot more effectively than using the motherboard. Never overclock with software unless you want to buy a new system. What motherboard do you have that you want to overclock with?
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.
