I just ordered a new PC from CyberPowerPc and I'm thinking of overclocking it just a bit but I am a noob so I have a couple of questions.
1. How much do I need to overclock to use the full potential of my 1600mhz ram?
2.Will I need further cooling or is what I have sufficient so my comp wont overheat?
3. Can you post some links with a guide to overclocking? Thanks!

Here are the comps specs.

your cooling is enough for some moderate overclocking.

You can set your RAM to run at its rated speed without having to overclock the CPU at all.
All you need to do is set the correct memory multi, memory voltage and timings.

Try google for core i3 overclocking guides : )
