Ok all, I have my build up and running. Now its time to overclock RAM and CPU.

MSI 785GT-E63 Mobo
Amd Athlon II x2 (2.7Ghz)
3 GB DDR2 RAM
WIN 7 64 bit
GPU Nvidia Geforce 210
PSU Cooler Master GX series 650w

I'd be interested in knowing what you've got for cooling and what your case is.

Is there no way you can unlock the other two cores on your CPU? Your CPU cooler is great, I have the same one, case seems good, have you got the two 120mm fans installed also? I'm no expert on overclocking, so I'll leave someone else to guide you, but, I think your cooling is adequate.

Thanks Abstract that link is cool. It does help. My only problem is im not familiar enough with all those terms, and even though they are explained picking a starting point and finding the best software to run tests with is not easy.
