Some overclocking experience is a must along with knowledge of the various platforms and technologies. However, you don’t have to be a “ranked” overclocker or have access to high-end cooling products. AM3, LGA2011, LGA1155, etc. compatible hardware or a combination thereof is essential. A confirmed HWBot or CPU-Z validated link of an overclock you have achieved is suggested but not required. For examples of reviews and quality expectations, please CLICK HERE
