I'm not sure but I think all current mobos have an overclocking option, and you do need good ram....overclocking ram like OCZ and G.skill. Your hardware will only burn or get damaged if you take it too far, it's good to go up 5mhz at a time.

I'd definitely suggest reading the overclocking guide.

Keep in mind frequency doesn't destroy hardware, voltage does. However overclocking frequency can corrupt data.
