Im finally going to try to oc my comp.
I have no idea how to do it.
My system is getting a little old and I want to keep it for another 6 months
Which guide should I use?, ( need a guide for oc dumb dumb's)
How much improvement can I expect? (what % improvements have others seen with my spec parts)?
Any extra tips that I should watch out for?

when i overclocked mine to 4.1GHz, i bought a new cooler + fan and fiddled around with them. it wasn't anything special(only $35-$45) but now it stays in the high 20's idle and up to 55 max durring prime95.
