Default Re: Overclocking for dummies

overclocking is a way to tweak your computer so it will run faster without getting any new hardware. Sounds great doesn't it. But it's tough you have to find the right amount of overclocking so it's stable and not to hot. But just read around and you'll find the ability to do so.
