    Question Overclocking - where to start

    I've got a new system :-

    Asus A8N SLi Premium
    Athlon 64 San Diego 3700
    Corsair 2x1GB TwinX2048-3200C2
    Stock cooling

    And I'm now ready to try out a bit of overclocking.

    Can anyone recommend a decent newbie guide or give me a quick run down of the basics ?

    Thanks.

    Basically, up the HTT by 5MHz each time and if its not stable add some voltage - its all got very easy - im just taking my 3700 to 4000 but mabe you would have to be more carefull and cleaver for high clocks
