Hello all. Let me say first that the last computer I built was back when Voodoo video cards were the hot new thing (if you dont know what that is, it was before pentiums came out).

Now that I am out of college and army training, I have abandoned my laptop for something more powerfull. Here is the system I have built:

CPU: Intel I7 2700K 3.5 Ghz, (3.9 with turbo)
MB: Asus P8Z68 Delux Gen 3
Graphics: EVGA NVIDIA GTX 580 Classified Ultra w/ Hydro block
Memory: Coursair Dominator 16 Gig Dual Chanel @ 2133 Mhz
Hard Drive: Coursair Force GT 240 Gig SSD
Power: Coursair 1050 W professional
Cooling: Custom Water loop on CPU and GPU using Koolance parts

So, obviously I did not build this thing to keep at stock speeds. However, it has been a long time since I have messed with machines capable of overclocking and pushing limits. Could some one with more expiriance give me some advice on where I can take this system? What limits are safer and where to start?

Also, there are a lot of overclocking tutorials. if any one has any that they would recomend for a new overclocker, I would appreciate that as well.
