Intel processors are locked in the multipliers so the only way to overclock is the increase the FSB. Go with small increaments in speed. When the computer starts acting funny or locks up, or just wont start at all, back it down to the last good setting. It would be nice if your Mb has setting for video and memory clock speeds that are separate from the fsb as you can usually overclock more. Personally i find no real improvement in overclocking unless you are into online gaming.

You probably know this that keep in mind that OCing voids the warranty and there's always a possiblity it could fry your compy. I don't recommend OCing because you don't get that big of a jump in performance and it's just dangerous.

I dont link to any step by steps because there isnt alot and im of the opinion that if you dont know enough to do it without a step by step you shouldnt be overclocking.

Building and overclocking two totally different ball games, upgrades cleaning up the HD using a good defragger, but you get what you payed for the most part when it comes to computers.As is the same in life you dont get something for nothing,

You can still overclock just make sure you know what you are doing and bear in mind it can end up costing you alot of money if you mess up.
