Default Re: when and how to overclock????

After you get your system up and running with all the drivers installed you can do it. You overclock clearly from the BIOS so you can do it whenever.

You really should jsut read a guide about the Vcore, NB/SB Vcore, memory voltage, multiplier, and FSB.

It can be confusing but it's all simple once you understand it.
