My System Specs


I just got my i7 950 a few weeks ago, and I'm a novice at OC'ing too. I used the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility, no messing around in the BIOS. Just takes a restart to take effect. Only thing you need to do is change the bclock and voltage sliders and press apply.
I got mine to 3.8GHz at low 60's and 4.0GHz at low 70's in temp running prime95. I havent done anything that requires the extra power so I just leave it at stock
I'm still a beginner so I don't want to give any bad advice, but first things you should do is get a core temp monitoring program like CPU-Z, and something to stress test it to confirm stability like prime95
