    Is the whole process of overclocking to do with configuring the bios?

    Most of it involves making changes in the bios to things like the fsb, multiplier, and the voltages. Tweaktown has some pretty good ocing guides that you can take a look at.

    Yes that's one part within oc, the other one is to look over your cooling and maybe improve it where/if needed.. :)

    In the start, yes (unless ya need to use jumpers and/or dip switches). Later when delvin' deeper into the Darkside hardware configuration will also pay a very big part (this usually involves a few extra $'s). :devil win

    Im not tryin to be rude, but if you dont know what a Jumper and/or Dip Switch is/does then you really need to learn alot mreo before gettin into OC;in. And since you dont know what those are, odds are ya got an OEM system, which is impossible to OC with

    DIP switches are becoming less common now, but they care used for configuring settings for all kinds of things. A certain combination of switches will give a certain system setting.

    The jumper is used to join two pins on a motherboard to complete a connection, which in turn will usually activate / deactivate a certain part of the system.
