Hi there,

Overclocking is like tuning your car..giving it more horsepower. By overclocking your computer it will go faster. You can OC your processor by changing the FSB or multiplier. You can also OC your VGA card by flashing or softmod. All of this isn`t without any risk though and you should be very carefull with it.

all intel chips since pentium 2 do not allow clock multiplyer OCing only FSB OCing i would only do up to 15% overclock and thats a lot.

BTW what kind of CPU do you have?

all cpus since the athlon XP and the first pentium 4 have been locked, but the athlon xp ships didnt have a heat spreader so you could carefully unlock them if you wanted to. but now there that head spreder on top blocking everything.

Hmm, it sounds very hard to do, and i'll probably end up breaking my pc again, since i wouldn't have a clue what to do.

This is my first computer that I OC'd and I had the luck that a friend of mine knows a lot of computers.I also read a lot bout it. But if you have totally no clue as to what you are doing then I`d say...Keep away from it.:)
