Default Overclocking questions

Ok so first off, how easy is overclocking? Could someone with very little tech experience do it with say an online guide or something? Any links to such guides is appreciated.

Also, would an oveclocked e7300 or something like that to say 3.5+ghz be better than a normal e8500 at 3.1ghz?

Thanks in advance!

Overclocking is a lot easier than everybody thinks. I would type out a simple guide for you but i don't have the time right now.

If it is the same model take the non oc'ed model. If they are different models post em up.

if $$ is not an issue, why buy an OCd 7300 instead of an e8500 which would (quite) easily far surpass the 7300 in um pretty much everything?

Well, a higher model number doesn't necessarly make it a better cpu in general.

The e8500 is pretty much better than the e7300 in every way.
