Hello first I'm going to say, I've never overclocked a day in my life, so I'm still new to this. But I've been thinking maybe I'd want to do this. Any tips on where I can start?
MoBo: M5A78L-M/USB3
CPU: AMD FX 6300
CPU cooler: H100i v2
Gpu: 1060 6gb
Ram: 16gb ddr3 G skill sniper
HDD: 1tb seagate
PSU: 550 coolerMaster
Welcome to the Forums ItzTriiggz. You're going to be highly limited by your motherboard. Itz a budget board and lacks a strong power delivery section. Dolk's guide is probably the easiest to follow guide out there and highly informative. I would start there. But again, I wouldn't expect too much with that motherboard.
Does your motherboard have heat sinks on vrm? If not, i probably wouldn't try overclocking unless you put some heat spreaders on them.
