You may want to read up on some OCing guilds before you attempt to be "guilded" into OCing

if you look there are OCing guilds on this forum:D

also you need to go into bios if you want to oc things other than your GPU

You're asking for a lot if you don't even know that you need to use the BIOS to overclock. Also, the most important factor that determines your ability to overclock is the motherboard, which is one of the items that you didn't deem important enough to mention (all CPUs will overclock, somewhat, but not all motherboards have the settings to do so).

EDIT: also, instead of having done 3 posts you could have just edited your first one, since no one had replied anyway.

Just set your vcore at 1.4, your divider at 166, and your HTT at 4x, and your FSB at 240. Test for stability and post back. If problems, set vcore at 1.45 and test.

Those are pretty low settings, I was saving you time. Check the bios, look at the labels, and my post should make sense.

The divider is the DRAM speed (or DRAM clock). 166MHz means DDR333, it could be written either way, both mean the same thing.

The vcore is the CPU voltage, or vid.

The HTT multiplier is the Hypertransport speed, it'll be either a small number (from 5x down) or a multiple of 200 (from 1000 down). So set this at 4x or 800MHz, whichever setting you get.

The FSB is the CPU clock or external clock, or whatever setting is at default at 200MHz and can be raised in increments of 1MHz.
