Take some time do a lot of reading (there are plenty of guides that can be found here); make sure you understand a little of what numbers do what under your bios, then come back and build from that in terms of something like "I've hit this barrier, with these settings. What can I change to these little things to make my OC stable or higher" etc etc.

Hope this helps

go into the bios, and play with any random crap you see. watch how it affects your system, and learn from it. (just stay awhile from voltages at the beginning)

there's a lot more to overclocking than upping the cpu multiplier.



i learn from doing, and making mistakes

i learn from doing, and making mistakes
^This. Just try not to fry anything. Like Burning-Penguins-Looks-Uber-Cool said, make your mistakes and learn from them. Of course, read the guides first but feel free to try new things (except obviously dumb ones of course). And, for a newbie, avoid voltage tweaking unless you know what you're doing ... I don't think you're that eager to know what a smoking 2600K looks like

That said. WELCOME TO OCN!!

EDIT: @topherflame: The naming sarcasm on my path is not in anyway meant to be offensive, I'm just laughing really hard right now at the picture and do apologize (and will correct post) if you find it offensive
