Hello guys, I just built myself a nice machine. My computer spec is listed on the sig. I really want to overclock my CPU, Graphic Card, and Memory sticks. Is there a step-by-step to do these kind of overclocking? thank you

thats probably vdroop its okay try leving cpu-z open and running and then open and application to see if the speed go up.. it goes down in speed to save power but then jumps when you start using applications/programs to reach your OC speeds.

It's called either EIST or Speedstep in your bios. Disable both that and and C1E to get your overclock to stick.
