Here's a guide to Athlon 64's but overclocking is similar for all processors. Up the FSB, up the voltage, watch the temps

I've been wondering that same thing. What do you do with the memory timings.

Keep them at stock, then once your overclock becomes unstable loosen teh timings, 2.5-3-3-5 then 3-3-3-5 or you could just run a mem divider and never touch your timings

depending on the memory chips you may be able to use voltage to stabilise rather than loosening the timings but most ram doesn't like it. i think its mainly the winbond BH and CH die chips that overclock well with voltage. just to echo pzero never loosen timings unless the overclock is unstable, even then i would give memtest a few runs because sometimes it may stabilise after a few passes
