I have three 120mm case fans and a Cooler Master Sphere CPU Cooling fan with copper heatpipe
I have an OCZ Steath X Stream 600 watt psu
I've never overclocked before.
MY mobo does have a utility to do overclocking without going into the bios. I want to be very careful here so as to not fry my system.
Any thoughts on this matter please way in with them.
Thank you

Regards Ernest

Hi there,

I suggest you start off with reading this sticky to answer and help you with any questions you might have. If after reading that thread you still have any specific questions we can still try to answer them here.

I want to give you the additional advice of making sure you have the cooling setup properly, having 3 120mm fans is good but try to make sure they produce a propor airflow in your system, this means bringing in cool air from one side and sucking hot air out on the other. Hot air goes up so put the exhaling cooler a bit higher then the inhaling cooler(s) to produce the propor airflow to cool your unit.

As I said, if you have any more specific questions after reading the sticky please feel free to ask and I'm sure we'll try to answer them appropriatly.
