Overclocking noob

I have i5, and I want to overclock it, but before I do that, I want to understand what I'm doing and not just follow specific data and hope for the best...
I saw many things like QPI, Vtt, IMC, PCH, vCore, PLL etc. where can I find a guide that will explain what are these things and how they affect the overclocking...

  1. If you want 3.2 ghz, just increase fsb to 152, leave everything else the same except memory, set it to your rated specs when you bought the computer. Eg : 1333mhz @ 7-7-7-18-2n *note these specs can vary*
    Edit: read this post http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/253365-29-core-overclocking-guide to go higher
  2. Your answer is just the same as others tell me to do... just do this and do that... I want to UNDERSTAND!

    It's all the same on King's guide... do 1, 2, 3... and maybe 4, or 5... but not "I change this value because SpeedStep means bla bla bla"

    I know that I can do the simple things, but this is not what I'm aiming for... I want to do the advance things while I understand what I do.

    I have the time to learn, give me the data to read...
  3. Well, although the C2Q/C2D overclocking guide isn't for i5, it does a more thorough job of explaining how the voltages and timings work
