No.

Help yourself by reading some guides, and then if you need help we'll be happy too.

Now that's what I call a happy "Welcome to the Board!"

Here's a guide from eVGA specific for your motherboard. You will also find a link at the top of the page for another guide to start with if you're feeling overwhelmed.

Those Nvidia motherboards can be finicky so depending on how much you want to dive into overclocking, you might be spending some time in those forums

Well I mean he just said, "how do I overclock"? IMO, we're not telling people HOW to overclock, we're helping them troubleshoot. I suppose I could've given him a link to a guide but... Google..

However, what I will say because of my personal knowledge with that board is at a certain point you'll likely need to up the voltage to the northbridge a smidgen. (Mines at 1.45v)

Ok ok. Here's a start. In the BIOS go to the overclocking section. (frequencies) Make the RAM "UNLINKED", set the RAM to... say 850mhz. (Something low so if it's unstable it's not as likely the RAM.) After that raise the FSB bit by bit and run Orthos for stability testing.

When you raise the FSB, the current cpu speed will be displayed right above.

Also, you can save OC profiles. Very nice to have.
