I'm reviving this...So what happened to that update?  Do you need help finishing it off?  Post what you have and we can iron everything out, or pm it to us.

Awesome guide and an impressive effort by those involved.

I'm glad this was brought to the front and would love to see a stickied version.

I think a bit more on when and why you would want to overclock and what the risks are might be would be great. There was one good paragraph that mentions computer life expectancy dropping and s[censored]zing a little extra life out of an older computer. I'm guessing my current 10 yr. old Dell would be entirely unsuitable even if I'm perfectly willing to risk torching it. However going forward I could be thinking of Overclocking a newer system once it starts to get long in the tooth if it means I could play modern games longer without doing a complete overhaul of my system every few years. Does overclocking lend itself to saving some coin or is it something that people mostly do for the love of having the fastest computer they can have?

I was just talking about bob_on_the_cobs overclocking basics on page 2 of this thread and some of the additions on cooling from page 3. It looks like a rough draft that they were planning to finish, the finished version is what I would like to see stickied (when finished).

I think that would be a great idea!

 Maybe you could mention it in the next podcast  that you may be looking for some input in creating a "Guides" section in the forums 

I would like to help where I can.[:D]

I'd love to see a guides section.  Bob has been working on this guide for quite sometime now and I was hoping that one of us could finalize it.  To be honest, I think he forgot about it.[:O]

there are 2 relatively new threads  started to possibly revive an interest here

 

Bios settings for overclocking your rig. (A guide for the rest of us)

http://hothardware.com/cs/forums/t/53962.aspx?PageIndex=1


Overclocking Video Cards - Monitoring Temps and Stability

http://hothardware.com/cs/forums/t/54045.aspx

 

maybe be various contributions to these threads and others[N>B  Fan thread aka Sammy fans/] we may have some amazing results in the end.[:)]

Not replying to a necro-thread for fun, but because I believe the OP's first points are still valid.  Those would be awesome guides to see today.
