before you overclock if you can even overclock check your temps are ok and your ram has a bit of room in upping the fsb. Then read the sticky and think about it. Always think about the next milestone in overclocking because you will regret killing your cpu.

Always monitor temps and run prime 95.

Honestly, if you have to ask how to overclock you shouldn't overclock.

Yeh, too right everyone needs to start somewhere, yeh I would definatly monitor temperatures before going anywhere, speedfan is a good piece of software to monitor, if theyre below 30 then its ok 30 and above youre in danger of an overheat and instability!
