Welcome to overclock.net drw1710! Don't worry, we are an extremely helpful community, feel free to ask any wuestions you may have
Check out the FAQ/F@H section when yoi get some time. For some basic info go here and check out the links. You can set all of the options within your BIOS, to get into this you have to press a key before the OS loads (usually Delete,F1, or F2).
Check out the AMD FAQS, tons of great stuff, Enjoy your stay here =)
