    How do I go about overclocking?

    It seems so easy from hearing everyone but I have no idea how to. :squint:

    I have a 4200.

    Get a motherboard that lets you overclock. I didn't know much about overclocking either but getting an Asus p5b deluxe and about an hours worth of reading was all I needed to OC my core 2 duo e6400 effectively.

    If you think you should be coming to OT to learn how to OC, then you shouldn't be trying it.

    I've never done it but have read plenty on it. I couldn't find the article I was looking for but at a glance this looks like it has plenty of info:

    Just search for overclocking. The one thing I can't stress more is go slowly. You are going to tell you reached your ceiling when stuff goes wrong. If you go slowly you'll be able to back it back down to a useable level. If you start jumping by large gaps you can fry your hardware easily.
