Default Research

This might be off-topic, but the main subject of it would be overclocking so i figured this is the right area to post it.

Any good online-reads on overclocking/hardware? more than the basics. I understand the concepts and general stuff but i would like to gain a full understanding on how the bus speed/ram speed/clocks all work together and all that jazz. Also recommended sites for tech reviews/news? I have been frequenting tomshardware.com and overclockersclub.com, and i think i have read every overclocking/case mod/computer build topic posted here in the last 3 or 4 months. I'm more or less trying to soak up as much information as possible before i finish my build and divert my attention to using up as much system resources as possible
