[Core 2 Duo E7200] New to OC, HELP!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
== Hardware ==

Motherboard: P5N-EM HDMI (Micro ATX)
CPU: Core 2 Duo E7200, stock @ 2.533GHz
RAM: 4GB DDR2, stock @ 800MHz
Graphics: GeForce GTX 460
CPU Fan/heatsink: Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro. Revision 2

Hello, completely new to overclocking, would like some advice/help/instructions.
I am fully humble and willing to learn more about OC.

I checked out my BIOS, fiddled with FSB. Got to 1348MHz without touching voltages.
So core speed is at 3.2GHz right now, any higher and I crash the comp.
(running an Orthos blend test, temperatures with HWiNFO32, 50 deg @ 100% load)
I don't know where to change any of my voltages, maybe motherboard doesn't support it?
What do I do with my RAM? Do I OC that as well? I don't understand 'timings' and such.
Also, how do I OC a graphics card?
