    Hey, I just had a few questions on how to overclock my Pi to a safe level. I plan on putting a fan in along with it, and I know I could probably boost up the settings safely. I just don’t know how. I’ve gotten to the boot.txt,but Im stuck after that point. Thanks!

    The easiest/safest way is to run

    Then choose advanced and overclock. There is just one current overclock setting for the RPi2.

    Or you can edit the config.txt as you mention if you want to custom tweak it.
