It's ok, but they still seem to hold overclocking as an unreachable pedastel for the majority of people; they treat it as if you have to be touched by divinity in order to circumvent 'data loss' or 'prevent excessive heating.' Basically, they're making a big deal about something that is fairly simple in current times. Realistically, nowadays, I could teach my grandma how to overclock in about ten minutes, but the article conveys that not even I would be able to overclock properly or something.

I guess it is somewhat true because the vast majority does not know much about computers and even buying a good one is hard. Why you think Bestbuy deceives all their customers -_-"

True that, it just ticks me off that places want to retain their authority over people by not breaking things to references simplistic and easy for people to understand. Heck, even if they just gave a step-by-step on what to do and how to do it they'd keep their authority over others, so long as they did not explain the 'why' component. Then, at least people would be OCing instead of being freaking scared of their computers.

Yeah but sometimes its easier to lord it over people, instead of helping them understand...cause god knows some wouldn't try to and would waste time...

Keep in mind it's the 1st part of however many articles they plan to publish...I certainly expect them to get into the overclocking portion of it
Otherwise, what's the point of the article?

I think it was a mini-primer on Overclocking...I guess you have to list out all the features, benefits and pitfalls to make it an all-inclusive article.

Yeah, most ppl reading the article already know how to overclock. Who else reads these things? Anyways, I think the point of the article is more of an overview. It can be bad for your components and they need to warn ppl. Like the newbie overclocker who just turns up his FSB to 300MHz.

The problem is, if you make it sound too easy, idiots will try and make their computer run at 8ghz, ruin it and blame TomsHG. Thats the just the thing they have to cover their arse about.
