There are tutorials on how to overclock on this site. Look around.

Well before you do anything, read read read and then consider replacing that PSU, if you are looking for your weakest link that's it. Otherwise you have a good setup for OCing and great board to do it with!

In my oppinion if you don`t know how to do it don`t start it, because you may damage you system. Read some info and when you think you`re ready read more info Then start OC-ing Good Luck!

Start by reading all of this:
http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ing-guide.html

and then re-post with any specific questions that you may have.
As stated by Mr. Jules, you may need to upgrade your PSU and I would recommend looking here:

For a listing of PSU's that are known to be compatable with DFI motherboards.

Check our download section and get
CPU-Z or @ www.cpuid.com a simple info providing program.

Orthos
CoreTemp
You will need those for testing and monitoring

Take screen shots of the main screen and the RAMs SPD timings tab and post them!

So me basics...

Get rid of the single 512 RAM stick, its more a pain to OC with the odd module than its worth!

If your RAM is DDR400, set it to DDR333 or 166MHz and up the RAM voltage or vdimm to 2.8v
Slowly increase the CPUs bus speed
Set the LDT to 3x.
Do test for stability with Orthos!!!
Don't increase the CPU bus speeds by large amounts, use 5-10 MHz. Once you find Orthos gives up instability, increase the CPUs voltage.

Increasing the CPUs voltage increases heat! Keep the full load temp when testing with Orthos below the low 50c range!

Check the manual on how to Clear the CMOS with the jumper. If you overclock to fast with out enough voltage it may crash the system requiring the CMOS jumper method!
NOTE: NEVER turn on the power with the CMOS jumper in the "Clear" position. Make SURE the jumper is returned to the default possition before powering up!
