Well, after lots and lots of reading and watching of various videos, not least of all the information over on Extremetech, I think I'm ready to take the plunge into overclocking. Nothing "extreme," however. I don't want to upgrade my cooling or anything, and I really don't want to have to up the voltage more than one or two increments at most, if at all. But there's one thing I'm still a bit unsure about, and it's the Linked / Unlinked options in the BIOS. Now, from what I could glean, selecting Linked links the changes made to the FSB frequency to the memory, so that when the FBS frequency is changed, the memory speed changes to match it. Am I on the right track so far? If so, what is the safest, best way to go about overclocking? Using Linked or Unlinked and why? Thanks EDIT: Oops. It seems I posted in the wrong forum. If a mod takes notice and would be so kind as to move this over to the computer forum.
