Please forgive the dumb questions, I am completely new to overclocking. I have the following components in my system:

Motherboard - EVGA nForce 780i SLI,Socket 775
Power supply - 850 watts
Micro - Q9450
Heatsink - Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro, Fan, Copper heatpipes
3072 MB Corsair XMS2 DDR2-800 low latency
Graphics - 2 x 512MB EVGA GeForce 8800 GT DDR3 in SLI

Would I have any issues overclocking to 3.0GHz on my system? If not do I just change the FSB?

Thanks
pajama

i don't see any potential problems as long as you don't try to overclock too high. 3Ghz shouldn't be a problem.

My Q9450 went to 3.2 without a voltage bump. I thought that would be fairly easy, and it was. I don't think I have a need to go any farther with it.
I just raised the FSB to 400 with an 8x multiplier.
