    First start reading and gathering knowledge on the subject.

    Second be sure you can afford to loose the parts you plan on overclocking. While most of the time it does no permanent harm, even experienced overclockers occasionally fry parts.

    Since all amd64s have locked multipliers [except the fx series] you will need to raise the fsb. Do this in small increments ie from 200 to 210 and test for stability with something like prime95. I would like to see p95 run error free for at least 3-4 hrs, then raise fsb again.

    Once you start to get errors, drop the ram speed from 400 to 333 in the bios and test again. When you find the max the cpu can do, you have two options.

    Backoff to a known stable OC or if you are real brave raise the core voltage by .025V and test again.

    Good luck and remember do not overclock with parts you cannot afford to loose.
