Thanks Atomic Rooster. That's a nice diagram. I want to learn more about OC. Can you show me the steps involved in overclocking? What do I need to configure in the BIOS and the CPU or whatever there is that I need to do? Is the process reversible if you happen not to like it?

Anyone's advice is welcome. Thanks in advance.
