Overclocking i7 920

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've just recently decided that I'm going to try and overclock my i7 920. Doing a google search (many actually) I couldn't find a guide that was up to date and compete with everything a beginner should be learning. Could anyone recommend a guide/guides to me? Here are some specs (if they matter):

CPU: i7 920
Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Motherboard: EVGA x58 SLI Micro
Heatsink: XIGMATEK Dark Knight-S1283V
PSU: RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-730SS 730W
GPUs (x2): EVGA 9800GTX+

Not sure if this info will help anyone recommend a better guide, but it can't hurt to try.

Thank.
