Overklocking My CPU?! Help the overklocking noob out!

So I have my system, and I like it. But i want it to be just a bit quicker, like a bit higher framrates in games and the most important: I want to render videos faster.

This is my setup:

Mobo: Asrock 960GM-GS3 FX motherboard
CPU: FX6100, standard cooling.
RAM: 8Gb
Graphics: Gigabyte Radeon HD7770 OC

Please help me out with overclocking this ******, because i´ve never done this before.

Thanks guys!

  1. well start by getting an aftermarket cooler cause its never a good idea to overclock on stock cooler,
    you need to read this guide http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/274820-11-black-edition-overclock-raising-multiplier-guide
    downnload msi afterburner http://event.msi.com/vga/afterburner/download.htm for your gpu its very user friendly so check it out and if you have any specific questions you can ask then
  2. Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums,
    The very first thing you'll want to do is ditch the stock CPU cooler and replace it with something a bit better - you'll be creating a lot more heat than the stock HSF can get rid of. Pretty much the standard for an aftermarket HSF is the CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO due to it's value (low cost, very effective) but it is a large HSF which may not fit your case.
    While you are waiting for a new HSF to arrive, read up on overclocking your CPU, see what others have attained at what settings (be aware you may not be able to get the same performance from your CPU as someone else) this should give you a good start http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=688663 and ask questions if something isn't clear
    Hope it helps
