First of all, thanks for this awesome site.
Been looking around for a while and am surprised how many skilled overclockers this site has.
I'm the happy owner of a FX-8150 which sits in a ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0, both running great. My first build.
Even though my PC is running great, I feel that my hardware should be able to run better and faster, and I've decided that I want to look into overclocking.
Currently I'm only running an overclocked ASUS GTX 660 and I would like the rest of my system to follow it's footsteps and get overclocked as well.
I have never overclocked a whole system before so I'm hoping for some wise and helpful words from some OC gurus, here on the forums.
I know my way around the BIOS, and have been looking at guides and videos explaining how overclocking works but I haven't found anything where my CPU and motherboard are used.
What I've done so far is only to turn off power saving options in the BIOS and would like to know what I should do (step by step) to overclock the rest of my system.
I have Hardware Monitor, CPU-Z, GPU-Z, Speedfan, ASUS GPU tweak, Heaven and Prime95 installed and ready.
Any information, tips and/or guidelines are very welcome.
