well, im certernly no expert, but first thing you should do...

1. download CPU-Z take some readings ect ect...

2. download some program to monitor temps (i use PC Probe 2, but its not all that reliable)

3. Get familiar with your BIOS, look around and see what your options are...

4. Download AMD Overdrive... also a nifty program...

as for OCing it slef, im not the best of all people to tell you that.. so ill leave it to the experts...

Oh, and welcome to OCing .

EDIT: are all of your RAM sticks the same? if not they often conflict with overclocking...
