Where did I state "its my money"? I want to learn to overclock but not a new system, it will come when I have a spare pc that I do not need that I can mess about with, until then I am not to happy to be doing it, especially with new hardware, just because you know how and find it easy does not means others do, I infact find it very daunting messing about with voltages and clock speeds on hundreds of pounds worth of equipment.

Its really not very hard. It just takes a little research, patience...and an OCN account.
For low/mid level overclocks its a simple matter (usually) of bumping a multiplier/FSB/HT Link to gain speed, testing it, and applying a bit more voltage when the OC fails stress tests. For high-mid and high level OCs it gets more complicated.
Overclosking is mostly bumping multiplier/FSB/HT Link, adding some voltage when it fails tests, and keeping your temps under control.
Dont let the elitest crap fool you a basic OC is not that hard.

The best thing to do is get a computer (like the i3 one you are looking at) and learn on it. Start with a small OC, say, 200MHz and see how it is done. Once you do it your self its not scary anymore. I would much rather run the slight risk of breaking a cheaper computer than a beast.
Heck, I learned how to OC on a Pentium 3 in the era of the Pentium D.

In conclusion. People talk about Overclocking like its hard to do.
These same people think that reading binary is impressive at all and makes them special. Binary is easy to learn to read. Understanding it is when it becomes something to brag about and nobody who understands it thinks binary is worth bragging about.

Take it slow, ask lots of questions on here, and you wont ruin anything.

Because you haven't tried

Seriously, we have all felt that IDENTICAL way. It passes. Its like anything, I mean I seriously sweated my first 450 dirtbike engine rebuild. After doing it once, I could do it again with my eyes closed if I had to.

Seriously man, there is nothing daunting about it. There are guides to literally tell you exactly what button to push and when. Thanks to the valiant efforts by distinguished OCN community members, OC'in has SERIOUSLY become IDIOT PROOF
