Asus M4A79 Delux, AMD Phenom II 940 cooled with Coolermaster H50 (Exhaust Radiator Exhaust setup), 4 Gigabytes of Corsair Dominator 1066, Coolermaster 650 watt Power supply ,Thermeltake Shark Case, XFX 5870, WD Raptor, Seagate Baracuda, Windows 7 Pro 64bit.
All have the latest drivers and board is running latest BIOS.
and am a complete noob to overclocking and would like it if someone could walk me through the process
And some notes:
-Your CPU will overclock like any processor on AM2, AM2+ and AM3 sockets. So don't limit yourself to just looking at guides about the Phenom IIx4 940
-overclock in the bios only
-keep an eye on your temperatures
-test thoroughly for stability
-ignore anything about changing the multiplier because your CPU does not allow this feature
-don't just rely on one guide. find multiple ones and try different things
-don't overvolt past the voltage limit of your cpu (I think it's something like 1.6V)
-Don't forget to test the stability of your ram with memtest86
