I got a Q6600 2.40Ghz but i wanna overclock, i just don't know how. I'm using a case with a 25cm fan called EZCOOL Aelus 22BK with 2 extra 120mm fan plus the cpu fan and the power supply. if i overclocked the Q6600 would it be ok in this case? and how do i overclock?

i myself dont know heaps about overclocking but the Q6600 overclocks quite well, i just got myn and im building it tonight but you need to enter the bios on startup and change just for starters your FSB(front side bus) and your multiplier changeing the fsb will up your cpu clock. im sure one of the guys with more knowlage will help you out soon.

You can have a look at the overclocking tutorial I'm writing:
http://cyb3rglitch.freehostia.com/Overclock/How-to-overclock-CPUs-&-RAM.html

But I suggest you look at other resources too. I haven't finished the tutorial (need to finish it and add more depth to some sections).

This is also a great general guide: http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/How-to-overclock-t11177.html

Awesome guide there, that pretty comprehensively covers everything you need to know, and then some. I'd suggest changing that grey text to maybe a darker shade, it is hard to read it with the grey background.

Otherwise that's a great effort, shame it can't be stickied

Thanks for the comments guys. :)

But the main question is: Is it helping the OP?

overclocks are based on the premise of frequency or "clock speed".

clock speed is usually cpu multiplier x front side bus speed.
so basically there is 2 simple ways to overclock
1. combination of FSB/multiplier alteration (if ur cpu / mainboard supports this) or

2. altering the front side bus speed with adequate RAM.

There are other more complicated ways, but FSB overclock is usually the simplest and easiest to do, some of the other guys can explain it a bit better i think
