Hello and welcome to OCN!

Overclocking is a tricky little skill but rather easy once you have the proper knowledge. More than anything else, I will say to you...wait until you've done a little research before you start! I fried a Mosfet on my first motherboard by trying to overclock when I didnt know what I was doing, not worth the risk.

Check out my Overclock Guide, it should have all the information you need to start learning. It is a quick read...once you've read it post questions here and I'll do my best to answer them.
