Hardware & Overclocking FAQ After some recent discussion between myself and Will, we decided to merge together a lot of stickies which were at the top of this forum, for tidyness' sake. There are some parts which are outdated, and some parts which are just not required anymore. All authors will be credited for their posts, but we're just trying to consolidate it down. This will also remain a closed thread to keep it from becoming a thread of discussion. If you have anything that you think would be useful to add to the thread, please email us with your suggestions! I've also now updated the thread with a lot of updated information as the old information was getting a bit, well... old Hope this is of use to you guys Contents Basic FAQ Basic FAQ - Part 2 Memory FAQ - Timings; What do they mean?
