hi there everyone, im a complete newbie to overclocking, but i am really interested! can anyone give me a step by step guide of the best way to overclock my system please, ive read up on it, but get 2 different methods; BIOS and a prog by MSI which shows all your speeds etc (i cant remember the name atm, soz). also, whats the way to test your system afterwards? ive bought a watercooling system for my cpu, so would like to see what i can do, many thanks.
