My System Specs

Question General thoughts about my PC and overclocking it

Hi, i'm new here! Just thought i'd post this topic just out of a general curiosity. Would like some opinions and suggestions for my build. (Sorry if in a wrong area)

Hard drive(s): Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.5" 8.9ms SATA
Powersupply: Corsair TX750W TX-sarjan 750W ATX
Videocard: Asus EAH6950/2DI2S/2GD5 Radeon HD6950 2G
Optical Drive(s): Samsung SH-S222A/RSMS
Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition
Case: Antec Three Hundred ATX
RAM: Kingston HyperX blu 4GB (2x2GB) 1600MHz
Motherboard: Asus M4A79XTD EVO AMD 790X Socket AM3 ATX
Processor cooler: Noctua NH-U12P SE2

Would like to know about general thoughts. For example about cooling... I know the case is small and lacks a lot from possible cable management. Also the hard drive mounts are not sideways which makes it even more chaotic. I mean, all the cables are in front and some are tucked to the back of the case that has a small compartment for the unused cables.

Would you recommend a new case for example? (Probably a dumb question)

And what about the motherboard? Can a motherboard be a reason for bottleneck situation? As I've heard some have said that my motherboard is kinda lacking when looking at the other parts.. I also seem to be getting weird results from 3Dmark for example and it feels like my PC should do much better than it actually is. 3D mark says theres something wrong with my system, as people with the same sort of build have better results etc. It kinda bugs me x)

I would also like to have some help about overclocking the CPU. I have searched and searched about overclocking, but the BIOS settings on my BIOS are different from other people. Either i lack some settings, one being: CPU frequency (EDIT: With this I mean the FSB frequency that usually is ~200-210), my BIOS does not have that. I know overclocking isn't just simply "Do as I do" but I have tried overclocking with different settings and I always get weird results, last time I did it, I got a BSOD before even getting to desktop :'D I must suck.. And how much would you approximately overclock the CPU with the Noctua cooler?

Curently temporatures on CPU at ~32C and goes around 46C when playing games.

Sorry aboyt the questions, I know they are kinda odd. But at least I would love to hear about overclocking it. I have looked Linus's overclocking guide for the AMD Phenom x6 1050T, but would absolutely LOVE for someone to just know the correct settings, although it's impossible xD
