    Essential Downloads list:
    Here is a list of essential downloads for any PC builder. The purposes of these programs is to ensure your computer is running stable and at a safe temperature. Other apps will be added to aid in the overclocking process in the near future. Keep in mind these apps are free and, ideally, you would need one of each.

    Temperature Monitor:
    Use these to monitor temperatures during torture tests to ensure your system is running at a safe temperature.

    Hardware Statistics:
    Use these applications to determine the specific make and model of your hardware. With this information, you can then find the exact thermal and voltage threshold for your components.

    Torture Testing:
    These do exactly as the name suggest. They put full load on your processor. Use this injunction with the temperature monitoring software to determine your processors temperatures at full load. Even though it may sound like you're doing damage to your system by running this, it is completely safe.

    Benchmarking:
    The best way to determine if your new system is running up to spec is to run a benchmark and compare your scores with similar systems. Benchmarking software provide a standard for testing as well as a large database of users that have posted their scores for you to compare.

    Indeed. Where there's a will there's a way. Here's my little brothers comp. You know a case is too small when a standard ATX board touches the bottom of your case.

    We will have to keep this specific, as this has potential to go Sub Topic in the already Technology Section.
    Start throwing up some systems specs.
