Hi all, i would like to overlock this CPU, but i don't know how. And i have STOCK fan. I think i need some kind of temperature graph tracking and some kind of software for overlocking. Thanks if anyone answers.

No software needed for the OCing itself -- just change the settings in the BIOS. The OC forum has lots of good OCing guides among the forum stickies -- good luck!

There is no guide for my CPU and i heard that you can burn your Processor if you Overlock via BIOS, not the software. Too i need something software that graphs temperature, can't find any in the google.

You didn't look hard enough -- the A64 guide is for you.
You heard wrong - you can burn your CPU both ways, and the software way usually doesn't even work stably.
Everest may graph temps, but strictly speaking you don't need a graph, you can just watch temp readouts.

Thanks, i'll try that. By the way, max FBS is what? Like 200, 300, 1000, 50... I mean Mhz which you add to the default Ghzs. I mean from what numbers high risk to burn your CPU?

Nothing right now, because i need another cooler for video card and CPU right now, because GPU's being overheated when i'm playing some heavy games. Coolers price is not from low ones so i need to think if it's wort it. And i hope to add like 1-1.2ghz if i do it.
