hi everyone. I've been overclocking my pc(not my sig rig) with my motherboards autotuning but would like to try doing it manually which I've heard is much better. I have an amd 955be, asus m5a97 mobo, 8gb gskill ram, xigmatek gaia cooler and a pny gtx 460 gpu. I believe for basic overclocking you just need to raise the multiplier and one other thing but would like advice on what to do before I mess with anything I'm not familiar with. I would like to get up to 4ghz if possible. when I use my mobo's autotuning and set it to extreme @ 3.9ghz, I get unstable when testing with prime95. I know these cpu's can do 4ghz with stock cooling so maybe overclocking the whole system is too much. all help totally appreciated.
