greetings!

im a newbie, my specs should be indicated below. i purchased my first ever computer. (FINALLY) thing is i want to overclock it but i dont know a thing about it, can i ask help from you experts on what to and ho to's?i dont really like looking at info guides it would be best if it comes from you guys my future depends on all of you and i hope someday i could be as good as you guys. also, please teach me the meanings of the terms needed to OC. hopefully we get to over clock my computer successfully at a good temp and voltage right? i have one fan in the front one(intake)one in the side panel(exhaust)one stock fan for my processor and another for my video card..i need to know everything from scratch. like where and how can i manipulate the settings. i just downloaded ntunes and i think its only for my video card. all i adjusted was the quality to max, refresh rate from 60hertz to 70 hertz(what is that)resolution 1024 x 768 and at idle im abnout 50c then i tested the stabilizer for 10 mins 52 passed. i checked the temp while with load its abot 65c, what is multiplier,whats fsb what is 400x8 whats mobo etc? in other words please teach the hell out of me..(LOL)
i want to learn the how to's. i want to overclock my set up in a mild way-decent enough.

-PROCESSOR E6750 2.66(how do i boost this to 3.++)
-MOTHERBOARD MSI NEO-F P35 CHIPSET(how?)
-RAM DDR2-667 1GB 2 PIECES SO 2 X 1GB(how?)
-HARD DRIVE 500GB
-VIDEO CARD 8500GT 512MB NVIDIA GEFOURCE(the indicator states that the GPU core is at 459.000 mhz and gpu memory is at 333.000mhz
ive been looking at other topics and compared to them my mhz is low how can i boost it a bit without putting risk, dont need much but a bit would be great)

You're looking for a shortcut. I would still suggest you read the sticky:

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/240001-29-howto-overc...

Keep in mind there's a risk in overclocking.

Google these:

RivaTuner (for o/cing video)
PC Wizard (for posting your mobo & ram details here)

What's your case cooling? Is the cpu cooler Intel?

wow thanks akhilles,


pretty well said, everythings there,all i need to do is read it more again and again to fully understand its contents, oh by the way its using a intel fan., should i change or upgrade? and i know theres risks on what we are doing but i wont max it out, just to a performance gap that is very minimal. maybe ill start of with porcessor and video card. then move on to motherboard and ram.

loet you know asap when i get the whole picture.\

thanks buddy! for your time and all.

I know newegg doesn't ship internationally, but you can look at the names, pictures & specs. These are good values if you can get rebates. Otherwise, pick out the cheapest among them. A good cpu cooler helps overclocking a lot, assuming all other parts meet the requirements.
