Would anyone be so kind?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm sorry to bother anyone or waste anyone's time. I'm pretty new at this stuff and I was wondering if anyone knew where the best area of the forum would be for this question.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is anyone capable of giving me step by step directions on how to go about overclocking my CPU, Graphics, and RAM?

I am not quite sure on how to overclock yet. I'm afraid I may screw it all up over one small mistake I failed to learn about.

All I really know is that:
I can only overclock one of those 3 components at a time. It is done through the BIOS menu. You increase the voltage to each component little by little until you reach the highest you can, still keeping it within a safe temperature.

No, one cannot overclock a discrete GPU through motherboard BIOS. Es. BIOSes.
