I dont understand why anyone would want to overclock to begin with, so im not sure about that, but i have indeed heard that as well, but I dont know how to do it, I never recomend overclocking and all my builds I do for customers I tell them that overclocking voids my garrenty.

I have my 2.66\1066 OC'd to 3.2\1280.

The memory & video were automatically OC'd when I increased the front bus .

im sorry i didnt mean to talk about memory, i was confused. what i meant to say was that both the north bridge and the hypertransport are in the way of the graphix card, and im not sure where the bottleneck usually is

Overclocking can be simple & mild or extreme.

A simple overclock would be to raise the front bus only.
Most systems that have OCing features will allow about a 20% OC by simply increasing the front bus.
When that is done usually the memory & video card are automatically OC'd to "keep up" .

For a more extreme OG some motherboards have features that allow you to unlock the video card from the CPU & set the video manually.
The boards that have good OC features will also allow you to manually set the memory .
They also allow you to set the front bus & vcore [CPU] voltage.
If a CPU has a unlocked multiplier they also allow it to be changed.

Keep in mind that OCing raises some heat concerns.
The faster components work the more heat they generate.
The more voltage that is applied to a component the hotter it gets.

Overclocking is mostly a matter of trial & error.
[This can involve clearing the CMOS many times]

The biggest problem is that 2 identical units will OC differently !

If you are interesyed in overclocking I suggest you start here,
