I've been wanting to overclock my Core i5 750, I've read alot of the guides and there is alot of in-depth information out there. The information to be frank, is a bit over my head. I've enable the turbo boost feature which I think takes me up to 3.2ghz. I'm wondering if there’s a guide that could help me push it to 3.7-4.0 range.
I also have some new RAM on the way. From my understanding what’s stable my 4gb of patriot DDR3 1600 may not be stable on my 8gb of corsair DDR3 1600. Is that correct?
Basically what I understand... enter bios.. adjust frequencies and volts a slight bit, test. repeat until unstable. any additional dumbed down information would be helpful.

I will just get the responsible part out of the way first, you have read your Intel Limited WARRANTY right, you know that if you overclock and toast the chip your warranty is void, if you then try claim the warranty knowing it is oc failure not defect then you are committing fraud (just saying).
