First time overclocker

A year ago I didn't know anything about computers, 9 months ago I built one, and now i'd like to learn / do more with it. Figured overclocking is a good place to start with that.

6g Ram:
Windows 7
2x 23'' Asus Monitors.

Anyway I guess any overclocking information you could give me I would appreciate. I'm sure theres thousands of guides on the internet, but if you linked me a good trustworthy one I would appreciate it.

Also, what temperature should my computer be running at and how do I know what the temperature is? I heard that overclocking is safe as long as it doesn't overheat.

Off topic: I plan on getting a third monitor and running eyefinity, would I need a better power supply?

Thanks for the help, I appreciate it!

  1. have you purchased this already? if not, you should go with a sandy bridge K series processor (Core i5 2500K or Core i7 2600K). they over clock better, and are much easier to use (and overall better).

    but here are some good links I have found (will post more as i find them):,2318.html
