Default OCing noob

so i finally got to buildin a pc from scratch. went a little over budget but here goes:

Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R

duo E4500

Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro

8800 gtx 768mb

GeIL PC2-6400 C4 Black Dragon (4 X 1GB) CL 4-4-4-12
64Mx8 or 128Mx8 DDR2 FBGA Chips
240pin, Non-ECC, Un-buffered DIMM
8 Layers Custom Black Dragon PCB with LED
Working Voltage:1.9V - 2.4V

coolermaster dominator with 5 120mm fans

i've no real beef with the performance, crysis plays fine on high settings surprisingly, but could do with a few more FPS in oblivion lol

i've played around a little in the past with upping fsb and letting mobo do the rest, but beyond that im clueless.

the MB Intelligent Tweaker offers some quick select and forget settings named cruising, sports, racing and turbo which provide increases in CPU speed as you go down the list. do these settings take care of memory speeds and voltage too? would anyone recommend using these settings or going manual?
what about votages etc

thanks for any advice!

in my experience it's always better if you do the over clock yourself. The auto settings don't always take every factor into account. Just read a few over clocking guides and you should be fine.
