What is SATA or/and SATA cable?

What is a chipset?

What is overclocking?

What is a BIOS recover? How and when do I use it?

Extra facts that are related would be appreciated.

Overclocking is the somewhat unknown and uncommon practice of running your CPU (or other parts) past the speed that it is rated at.

SATA - Serial ATA. This is what the newest hard drives use to connect to your motherboard.

Overclocking - See above defination and forum stickies.

Bios Recover - Setting your bios back to the default settings by moving a jumper on your motherboard, when you make a mistake overclocking.

Chipset - Usually the chipset describes the type and company that make a certain chip on a certain peice of your computer. EX - My motherboard has a nvidia nforce 4 chipset.

My PSU came with a brief history of SATA and how and why it came about. You will probably find something better online, like at www.pcguide.com .
