first of all before you start ocing i would get some after market cooling since stock wont get you to far, if you do use stock make sure you dont up the voltage at all

try reading some of the guides here like in the intel cpu section, there are alot of basics that you can look over and itll give you a rough idea of how it all works , then once you do that you will have a better understanding of ocing and we can narrow it down a bit

What he means is there are how many guides to overclocking on this site, if you have specific questions then we will be willing to help, but, 'how do i overclock it' is a stupid question.

You'll be fine, you can always RMA.
I just trained myself like that from all the years with my subs I guess.

Nope, you put them in the same color, so both in the black slots or, whichever color your mb uses
