Question Can someone help me to understand how to overclock my new system please?

Hi everyone!

Well, I have never overclocked, but would like to do it in a safe and orderly way.

I just put this rig together and it is working fine.

I have Easy Tuner 6 from Gigabyte and thought about using this program.

Can anyone give me any thoughts and advice please?

My system components are listed in my signature.

Have nice day everyone!

well, im not going to run it down from a-z for ya until you know a little more and can ask specific questions.
read through our stickies and do a little searching on the forum. there is an enormous amount of info on overclocking q6600s.
the advice i will give is you can do better than easy tuner 6.
good luck!
