Hi i have tryed once of OC my computer before and i failed missrably.
I am looking to overclock my CPU which is a Q6600 to 3GHz but i am a complete noob to overclocking. Everytime i have tried it so far my computer fully crashs and i have to take the battery off my motherboard to reset it.
My PC specs are below and i am running my computer off just fan cooling. At the moment my PC is running at 2.4GHz x 4 with a system temp in its low 20's and CPU in its mid 20's (Degrees Celcius)

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.4GHz
Memory: 4094MB RAM
Hard Drive: 500 GB Total
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 512
Operating System: Windows Vista™ Ultimate (6.0, Build 6000) (6000.vista_gdr.071023-1545)
Motherboard: Asus Striker II Formula

Any other questions about my system or anything dont hessitate to ask.
P.S. Remember i am a complete novice to OC'ing and know very little about the Bios (i have the most recent BIOS installed)

If you would prefer to talk via Vent use this ip vent.killercreation.co.uk and this port number 19551 My name on it is Graemez and i am in chill zone No. 1
If you use team speak 2 use this IP 81.19.217.170:8770 and my name is GeGe and i am in the Practis channel

Thanks for your time and help, and happy Xmas
