hello, ive read on quite a few forums that the 3700 + is very good at overclocking and wanted to try it. ive never done it before and im worried about the consequences if it all goes horribly wrong. this is only because i have recently bought a xfx 7900gt, X-Fi Xtreme Gamer and a 19" HD tft and i dont wont to break them. everything else i will need to replace soon anyway (Quake Wars & Crysis!!!!!) so i thought i would try this.

here is my sys spec:
- A8N-SLi Deluxe
- AMD 64 3700 + San Diego
- Arctic Cooler Pro
- 550 watt PSu (not sure which one)
- 2 x 512mb PC3200 DDR400? Corsair RAM
- 7900gt
- X-Fi
- 200gb Seagate HDD (not sure speed)

erm, i think that is everything, do u guys reckon it is wort it, and if so, how do i go about it..Thx

overclocking always carris a risk of system wear or damage, the best advice to give someone who wants to overclock is don't unless you can afford to replace the component you have overclocked if it becomes damaged. that being said if you still wish to try my best suggestion is to read up about it. www.overclocking.net , www.overclockers.com and a search of overclocking on google should generate some good reading material. remember to take notes you can never be over prepared. also familiarize yourself with your motherboard manual, and how to jump the cmos as you will do this several times before you find a stable overclock. Goodluck fee free to ask any other questions you wish. I will be happy to answer them.
