    Are you looking for a pre-defined template or a tutorial? Raja has written a tut for OC'ing which you might want to review.

    This is crap.

    Costa Rica is just an assembly plant. It has absolutely nothing to do with the quality of the silicon.

    If I can find the post that explained that I will link it here.
