Computer Overclock halp

Postby The R » 16 Dec 2009, 20:24

About a year and a half ago I got a new computer with some advice form a few friends and built it. Works great and everything, but I was originally intending to overclock it but never really got around to actually doing it (was going to with help of a friend but hes too busy atm, and I kept forgetting). So now with my current OS install getting slower i'm gonna reformat and put on WIN7 and now I wanna overclock it since the slate will be clean. So I need some help/suggestions.

So basic hardware: Built JULY2008 - Numbers below part names are NCIX part numbers (you can put them into NCIX search)
