I recently purchased an athlon II x4 630 ($99) and GA-890GPA-UD3H ($125) and I'm going to assemble my PC soon. However, I'm wondering what is the overclocking capability and exactly how do I overclock in the first place?? If this matters.. I'm going to be using the stock cpu cooler :D  Someone help me out pleaseee!

You really should get an 3rd party cooler otherwise, overclocking won't get you far because the stock cooler can only cool so much before you get dangerously close to ruining your CPU.

Search Tom's Hardware site. There's plenty of How-To's on overclocking there.
