Howdy friend.

We have almost the exact same hardware XD And I just did my first OC on Saturday so maybe my experience will be of some use to you.

The Black Edition is neat because the only thing that you really need to do is increase the CPU multiplier to start. Lots of people suggest bumping it up to 20x to get yourself to 4ghz. You may be undervolted here, though, so you will want to set your voltage to around 1.4v, test for stability, and lower little by little until it becomes unstable to find your sweet spot. This way you balance performance and heat. I have yet to adjust any voltages, though, so don't take my word for it. I'm sitting now at 3.8 with just the multiplier at 19.

Are you using any kind of CPU cooler? I'm pretty happy with the Corsair H50 but your mileage may vary.

Edit:
Just wanted to add, since I had no idea where to start in the beginning, the variables I mentioned are found in your BIOS, which you access by pressing delete while your system is booting.

To test for stability, you'll want to run a program like Prime 95 for hours on end and monitor your temperatures throughout. 24hs and no temps above 50c = stable OC!

Cheers. I'll be curious to know if you run into any issues with 16GB of ram past 4ghz as some people say it causes problems. I'm hoping not! I'll be trying the same thing when I get home tonight.
