I'm looking to upgrade my cpu. I've got the Phenom II X4 970 now, and I want something that's faster and that I can overclock easy. I've heard good things about the AMD FX-4170, but I've also heard its benchmarks were poor. Can anybody recommend a cpu?

No. There is no faster CPU that AMD can offer. Except maybe the piledriver CPU's coming out. Why don't you overclock the one you have?

If I knew what voltage to set it to, I would! but everytime I try to, I get a blue screen. I dont know what I'm doin wrong.

Try seeing how far you can go without a voltage adjustment. Then one it starts to BSOD, add voltage .05V at a time.

Do I do it in the Bios? How much should I go up on the frequency each time?

Yeah. Change the multiplier by 1 each time.
