Exclamation Want to OC my Current Rig.

Would this be difficult or easy to do,, the setup I have is in my sig, and I have no idea what I'm doing... Is there a tutorial to help out with this, or can someone just tell me a very easy way?

The only problem i see is that i have read a few problems with there being "Fsb holes" on the 680is where the machine just wont boot.

Sounds good, I've already used ATi Tool, and OCed my GFX Card, to 660/800... so next step is the CPU.
