  1. Welcome to the forums! I suggest you take a look at this sticky for RAM OCing:

    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/254402-29-memory-overclocking-guide-links
  2. My advice is not to overclock if that system even works right once you build it. I looked up the motherboard and it is listed to support Phenom X4 with a max of 95W TDP, the Phenom 9850 has a TDP of 125W. Push it too hard and you could very well kill the board.
  3. I double checked the build before Turning on and After posting this Ived Already picked out new board case power supply and Ram for this build updates will be posted once Purchased
