Better yet, we can help you by helping you help yourself. As the maxim goes, "It's one thing to give a hungry man a fish; it's an altogether greater thing to teach him how to fish."
It's not that I personally don't want to dole out advice, because I can honestly say that I do when I'm qualified to do so. But to be perfectly frank, you'll feel so much better if you learn as much about overclocking as you possibly can; you'll feel more confident about the changes in settings that you make, and you'll understand how things work, more or less. That's the whole point of the hobby (for me, anyway).
So, to help you on your journey into the dark world of overclocking, I would suggest reading some of the stickies here. There are overclocking guides in both AMD and Intel flavor, but if you're going with AMD, may I recommend this
as your introductory primer into the dark art?
Good luck, and we'll be here should you have any questions once you get stuck in.
