Check this video out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPyHVGmyjQo

It will give you a reference on how to overclock. The bios are actually exactly the same with a higher end motherboard.

I am getting this Sabertooth motherboard tomorrow. :D

I built almost the same set up and am looking to OC.

Just curious, why did you use dual channel ram? You have a triple channel set up.

Do you mean I have DDR2 Ram rather than DDR3? Sorry but i'm not quite sure what that means.

And thanks for the video, Ill try it later on today.
