The first thing you need to do is post pics of all of your gear.

I went to look for a link and found the intel subforum has no stickies for overclock guides! oh noes! (the amd subforum does, so i expected similar from the intel side, not trying to be a fanboy)

anyway, welcome to OCN!

If you add all your info here it'll make it easier for people to help you out! GL with your Intel OC

i wouldn't say you need to put any benches or temps or clocks in. Hardware is important to know though. I'm assuming your case is the CM 690 nvidia edition? or is it the stacker 830? either one is great for OCing on air. Are you using the stock heatsink and fan on your cpu?
Cooling is key to OC, if you want any impressive OCs you'll probably want an aftermarket cooler.

Btw, i noticed this thread is probably in the wrong section. You may wish to petition a mod to move it to the intel forum. Or just creating a new post there may be easy enough

its stacker 830. my cpu has a regular fan (which was coming in the same box). my case has 1 fan at the front, 1 fan at the top, 2 fans at the left side and 1 fan at the rear end. all fans are coolermaster. (by the way, how to move this section to intel?)

oh, i have to say i'm jealous of the 830. I really want to buy one for a future build, except i think i'm going water cooling anyway, and that's an air case pretty much.
There hasnt been any useful overclocking info in the thread yet, just some welcomes and setting up your system info. you should just start a new thread here
so ignore my first comment about intel stickies, i found them in the intel-cpu forum link above (as opposed to amd-general)
