New system and new to overclocking

Received my system yesterday!

Intel Core i7 920 D0 Stepping Quad Core Processor LGA1366 2.66GHZ Bloomfield 8MB LGA1366 -SLBEJ-
ASUS P6T SE X58 ATX LGA1366 DDR3 LGA1366 3PCI-E16 PCI-E1 2PCI CrossFire SATA2 Motherboard
Noctua NH-U12P SE2 LGA775/1156/1366 AM2/AM3 I7/I5/PHENOM Heatpipe Cooler W/ 2XNH-P12 120MM Fans
OCZ OCZ3OB1600LV6GK 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-1600 PC3-12800 CL 9-9-9-24
OCZ StealthXStream / 600W / Active PFC
(I hope it's all the information needed)

I'm looking to overclock this, and I'm not looking for >4GHz, in fact I'd like to play it safe and be 100% sure nothing would go wrong. (from 3.2Ghz to 3.8GHz would be fine) I've found multiple sites an semi-tutorial about overclocking, but since I'm a COMPLETE noob at this, I frankly don't understand it... and, in a way, I don't need to understand everything about it, I just want this baby to go faster! :lol:

I tried to overclock with TurboV (software that comes with mobo) but it hangs my system each time... so I guess I would need to change from BIOS.

Anyone in here can give me a hand and tell me what I should be changing?

  1. Thanks... but sadly the "tutorial" on that page doesn't help much, as the BIOS is totally different, and I can't find half the settings it says I should be changing. :(

    Still stuck.
