Hey deviling, welcome!

If you're really serious about overclocking properly, I suggest you take the time to read the sticky posts in this section of the forum. Particularly:


http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/221745-29-core-quad-temperature-guide
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/240001-29-howto-overclock-quads-duals-guide
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/235616-29-finished-lapping-q6600-with-pics-results

You'll also be surprised at how much information has been laid out by previous peeps' conversations. Good luck!

So are we. :) Once you go through the guides and get a general idea of what you need to do, ask questions and you will get all the help you need.

But we expect you to do some of the work.

3.2MHz is not an overclock. It's an underclock. :) I know you mean 3.2GHz but could not pass it up. Start off by overclocking to 3GHz. that is 1333MHz FSB. Then increase it from there 100MHz.
