Well it's pretty much more, power for free basicaly. It is done within bios. But if you don't know what you are doing, you can really damage your hardware.

Wait what? Your home audio and HDMI should not be run "through" the computer case. They will hookup at the back, via the HDMI port/adapter on the video card, and the sound card.

You guys made ocing sound really scary and dangerous when its not. The only way he could damage his components is if he went for 5GHz at 1.9v on his first run with a stock cooler lol. OCing is easy and its free performance with almost no risk if you just ask how to do it first.

Oh and I have the TT Armor (not plus) and its a great solid case. The flaps on the front can be a bit annoying sometimes but its really no big deal. I wouldn't turn down the case just for that reason. This thing is heavy so don't plan on moving it frequently
