Kidding. That website is good.
LMAO!!!
kinda like when my cusion told his little sister that microwaves work becaues of the little leprechans in there with matches....

Don't listen to those who say there's no need to overclock.

LIESSSSS all of themmmm.

There is no such thing as "no need to overclock". Those 4 words must never be placed together in that order. It can be, OH "no! Need to Overclock!!" But nothing else.

I'm rambling. If you need any help in overclocking, its good to understand the Fsb's and multipliers and all that good stuff first. And hopefully you're good with entering and changing stuff in the BIOS too. I remember firs time i went into the BIOS i was scared. All blue and stuff

and make sure you have like an automatic fall back settings, just in case u overclock too much and cause overheating. Nothing like that one time my fall back settings failed, and my computer would repeatedly crash before i could underclock it again. Sighhh, it took liquid cooling just to make it run for the 10 seconds i needed to change it back.

So, yeah. overclocking can be dangerous. Like leprechauns

Overclock is a function your processing hardware, like CPU, GPU, RAM, etc.

It's basically telling the processing device to calculate more than it's set to. Usually, there's no bitching. It will do it without problems, until a certain speed.
