Thanks for all the replys, I actually halfway expected to get flamed

I know the basics of overclocking, but nothing more....which means I will probably be doing some research before I start anything. I've heard good things about the opteron, which is why I bought it to begin with, but I'm unfamiliar with the capabilities of my mobo.

As for my hdd...I have too much junk (my treasure) to risk losing it, no matter how small, so I will run a fresh windows install on a new hdd just to be safe (I'm pretty sure I have one laying around somewhere).

I do have one question, though, and this might be answered in a FAQ or sticky (if so, just ignore me and tell me to go check), but what should I invest in for cooling? Again, I have merely two fans on the side, one on the back. Right now, I run at 33C (at least that's what my case tells me...if you want specific heats / area let me know).

Again, thanks for all the replys, and I'll post when I start making the trek to a better system for advice and, well, just because I'll be happy I'm finally doing it.

Thanks,

William

Hello again. You say your case temperature is 33°C, What is the room ambient temperature and therefore the temperature gradient?

If you only have say 8°C difference then this is quiet the norm.

Typically my room is about 20°C with a case temp of 25°C with a core temp (idle) of 30°C

My room is typically 27 Celcius (Yes, I know it's hot, but its a 70 square foot dorm room with about 6 running appliances all producing heat lol).

Then in that case your temps are ok in my opinion.
