Ok so before I start I'll get the formalities out of the way:

Use this information at your own risk! MyTechSupport and myself will take no responsibility for any damage caused to any hardware from using the information provided in this guide.

OK so now that's out of the way let's get started.

If you're a total newbie to overclocking you should read the definition of overclocking that's in the forum and then come back and read this.

If you've read the definition of overclocking or you already know what it means then you should know that overclocking is pushing your hardware past its factory settings to get more speed out of it.

There still lies the same problem many computer users are having, how is overclocking done? Hopefully for those users out there that do not know how to overclock their computer, this article will help aid them somewhat.
