I would read he sticky that I linked here before you start so you have a good general idea of how to go about overclocking. The one thing that I ill say is that you will need a olt of patience and time to do it as it can be a tedious process. I do suggest that you take your time and not rush it because you will end up with a better overclock if you do. Once you get to your target overclock if there an option in the bios to save the overclock profile you should do so because if the bios is reset for some reason you want to be able o get your settings back without going through the process all over again.
