if your a newbie at overclocking, then let me tell you that overclocking voids the warranty of your computer devices and overclocking can permanently damage your computer components.

i dont mean to scare you but im just letting you know what overclocking can do.

since you want to overclock, then i recommend doing some homework and reading up about overclocking. one big factor is overclocking is cooling. make sure you get good system cooling and also that your heatsink on top of your cpu is cooling your proc pretty well.

if you dont have a thermal compound between the cpu core and the heatsink, then i recommend purchasing artic silver 5, a very good thermal compound. make sure you have good intake and exhaust fans cooling your whole system. good overclocking site that has tons of info on overclocking as well as a database of people who overclocked their computer is www.overclockers.com

probably you can search in the database for the cpu you have and see what people did to overclock their procs and other computer components.
