New to Overclocking need some help

Hello all, I am completely new to overclocking, don't know much about it but I know I can do it.

Here's what I have:
- AMD Athlon II X4 620 processor
- Corsair H50 CPU watercooler
- ASUS M4A785-M motherboard
- 8gigs of Samsung M3 78T5663QZ3-CF7 DDR2 memory
- 3x200mm fans in the case with a 120mm fan on the inside of the H50's radiator pushing into it and an 90mm fan on the
other side pulling air out.
- No graphics card
- Stock Bestec 300W power supply (replacing soon)

I was wondering where I should start? I have already installed Prime95, CPU-Z and Core Temp.

Thanks in advance for your help!

  2. OC Athlon II X4 620 use FSB and muliplier locked .. it's very hard for your Spec : you need upgrade !
    1. RAM : you need ram for OC (your ram very value )
    2. no VGA addon very hard for RAM ... it will share memory from size RAM
    3. also PSU not sure
    i'm sorry not recommend if still use that RAM value
  3. what are you actually wanting to do with this?
    i'd start with getting a graphics card (nvidia preferably - that way if you want to number crunch you can).

    get some high quality thermal paste, i dont know what the stuff that comes on the h50s is like but generally the stock stuff is lacking.

    then there are then loads of guides on the actual OCing on the net. google them and if you want help with stuff in them, reference them in your posts.
