What to do before a overclock / overclock button on mobo /

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Im looking to start my first overclock , following the guide below, my main question is on my MSI Eclipse SLI mobo it has a overclock botton on it, do i ignore this and continue or do i need to press it to allow oc'ing, cant find any info about it , also i ony have a standard intel fan for my 920 thus why only going for the 1st stage OC,

Getting Started And Overclocking to 3360MHz (3.36GHz).

I assume the "button" is for some sort of nonsencical "automatic" overclocking, Leave it alone. Overclock in the BIOS!
