Looking to Overclock help needed

My specs are the following:

MOBO: Asus P8Z68-V PRO
CPU: i5 2500K
RAM: 2x4GB 1600 G.Skill Ares

First let me start off by saying I'm currently running only 1 dimm of RAM because I was having trouble running both faulty stick maybe but anyways. I'd like to overclock my CPU to somewhere around 4.5ghz and I know NOTHING about overclocking so how should i go about doing this? Can someone please point me in the right direction. I do understand that not all systems are the same and some people can achieve overclocks that others cannot. I just recently put this system together and would like to overclock cpu, ram, & gpu. Any help is appreciated. Thank you. If any other information is needed let me know.

  1. Have you tried reading our basic guide? It's easy to do a simple CPU overclock and our guide is very easy to understand.
    You won't need to overclock your RAM and the GPU can be easily overclocked in RivaTuner or a similar program. I think there's one made for Nvidia graphics cards
