Overclocking is brilliant in theory. You buy something, give it a bit of lovin', and hey presto, you get more bang for your buck. It can be the wrong sort of bang when done poorly, yet get the overclock right and it's the equivalent of buying a Big Mac and geting a free order of fries just for smiling at the cashier.
But overclocking isn't quite as attractive as it used to be. The idea of buying cheap and ramping-up performance has been eroded by the fact that OC-ready components are now positioned almost exclusively at the premium end of the market. And there are also genuine concerns regarding energy consumption, heat output and longevity.
We're intrigued to hear your thoughts on the subject, so for this week's question let us ask: is your PC overclocked? Share your answers using the comments facility below and if you do dabble with heightened frequencies, let us know which hardware you target and at what speed.
