easy there cat, i ain't trying to call you ignorant nor do i think you should call yourself that. we all had to start at the beginning. you built your own rig and that great. there are already so many good resources that it a bit redundant to "tell someone" how to overclock. and with cpu you have its really easy compared to the "old days"!

now you mentioned "software" and that leads me to believe you are looking at some stuff that came with your motherboard's installation disk. that stuff is ok but if you want to roll up your sleeves and do some real overclocking, even just a little, that means going into the BIOS and learning what to adjust and why you are adjusting it.

there are also some tools that will be needed such as core temp, cpu-z and prime95. i didn't see if you have a third party cpu cooler in your system specs. if you are using the stock fan/heatsink that came with the cpu, you won't be going very far. the biggest enemy is heat and a cooler such as CM hyper212 EVO will benefit a great deal. i am not advocating a buying that for that etailer, just an example, but it will be "good enough" if you're not looking to set any records. oh, yeah some thermal paste such as artic silver 5.

lets see, you have core temp to watch the temps, cpu-z to watch the speed of the cpu and voltage and prime95 to stress the cpu to find if its stable.

you with me? picking up what i am throwing down?
