    Before trying to overclock, make sure your CPU cooling system is up to the challenge. If your using the stock fan/heatsync your probably going to run into problems overlocking.

    You need to connect the L1 bridges in your prosessor, you can do that with a normal pencil (the lead conducts elec.) or with silverglue.

    check does your bios have SoftMenu III thingy

    anyways, there should be an option where you can change the multiplier, voltage, etc
