    Hey everyone,

    I have a pc I built a while ago and always wanted to overclock it. I know my gear is good enough to over clock it a few MHz above factory. Here are my specs

    Antec 900 case
    ASUS P6X58D-E LGA 1366 Motherboard
    ADATA XPG 6GB Ram DDR3 1600
    Corsair 650TX Power supply
    Corsair H50 CPU cooler
    GTX 460 GeForce
    Samsung spinpoint F3 1TB HDD
    Intel i7 930 @ 2.80 MHz (1st gen)

    Windows 7 pro x64

    My goal is 3.4 to 3.8 MHz for now. I have tried to google search what is needed but once I get into the bios its a bit overwhelming and i get unsure of what to do. Please guide me through this
    anyone lol. Id very much appreciate it :worthy:
