The Modifications Mega-Thread

80+ Links and Counting!

Alright guys, I'm back. I have gotten a ton of PMs about pc modification tactics so I decided to try to get this bad boy together. Obviously this doesn't link to every guide in the vast internet universe, but I tried.

Also, I didn't include guides of the same basis process on different items of hardware...like LED's on just about everything. This is meant to just be a ton of walkthroughs to help you guys through the modding process. Hopefully some of the new posters can take a look before asking common questions. This took forever to put together and fill up so please excuse any stupid mistakes.

I don't want to add clutter, but I figured my project this month would be beneficial

Would Wusy's Core 2 Duo overclocking guide be appropriate, or is it too specific / outdated?

just wondering, does "removing heatspreader" apply to RAM, also? I wanted to get XMS2Pros for the LEDs, but then put Mushkin Redline heatspreaders on it.

MPC can you update the links from GideonTech? They updated the site so you have to manually find all the links on the site. It's not hard to find them, but it'd just be convenient.
