Default What is your favorite OC program?

OK, what are the best/favorite downloadable (preferably free) overclocking programs that you like? For both CPU and graphics card. I haven't OC'd my comp at all and i think it has a lot of potential, how can i bring it out?

1)Sig has to be 5 lines
2)You OC your CPU in Bios. Go back a couple of pages(mayby 5) and look for the official OC'ing guide, i copied it from OC'er forums.
3)For your gfx card use coolbits2

Find it yourself.

Collbits is very good. You can hit detect optimal settings so you dont hurt anything eventhough i did artifct with optimal settings once.

Yea, coolbits will do it. Well, i cant say specificlly but its always worth a try. Just hit dectect optimal settings and see what happens. If you notice artificating, just turn it down.
