I'm fairly new to Overclocking, please help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I just recently built a brand new PC and it's incredible so far. I love it. After a few days of just testing out games and just doing stuff on it I felt like overclocking my CPU. I'm fairly new to overclocking and if you guys could guide me in the right way or just give me some links or something, that will be greatly appreciated. I didn't overclock anything in my PC at all. My GFX card came factory overclocked and that's it. Please help me, I will really appreciate it.
