There's a few real good guides kicking around this forum but you will not find one that uses your own equipment specifically. You will have to adapt a guide to your equipment if you plan to OC your gear. Keep in mind if you are just using stock cooling you will be greatly limited in any OC on your system.

Here's a good place to start with allot of information ........

That's quite a bit of reading you're linking there....


The fundamentals are going to be the same for any FX cpu, although it can be a little daunting when you can't find a guide with your chip and/or board. Be patient and take your time. If you really want help, you're going to need a few things. Prime95, HWMonitor, CPUz, and lots of screen shots.

Before you start overclocking the Cpu you're going to need and aftermarket heatsink.
