How to overclock your computer

Above: Jarred explains the basics of overclocking.

Overclocking is not difficult. At least it’s not as difficult as it used to be, and it’s not as mysterious as some corners of the Internet make you believe. You may not even need to open your box. Chances are you already have everything you need to dabble in the dark arts and get more Hertz from your gaming equipment. If you are lucky, you may be able to squeeze out enough performance to avoid upgrading for a few months.
