Well, when I started OCing I used this one:
http://www.overclock.net/t/538439/guide-to-overclocking-the-core-i7-920-or-930-to-4-0ghz/0_20

Pretty detailed and easy to understand, imo.

I dont have any "special ram" lol... I mean that the ram I have in my pc is the one that came with my acer aspire predator, for now I only switched mobo & graphic card. do I need better ram, or can I start OCing with this one and buy it later on (next month most likely, at the moment i have no money frown.gif )

Can you put your specifications in your signature?
http://www.overclock.net/t/1258253/how-to-put-your-rig-in-your-sig/0_20

As for the RAM, with the first-gen. i7s CPU & memory frequency are tied together through the BCLK frequency, but you can lower the memory multiplier (SPD) to counterbalance it.

So lower the memory multiplier and you can still overclock while not going over your rated memory freq. smile.gif

You can start OCing on it, as long as you do not affect it's speeds too much. Lowering the memory speed will come in handy especially since to OC your i7, you will need to raise the bclk, and raising bclk also raises RAM speeds.

Still i would recommend you get good RAM, at least of 1600 MHz, for it not to limit your OC too much.
