I'll have a look over the next little while to see if I can find a good intel guide. (I haven't OC'd an intel since the P1 days.... :) ).

Good start before any OC though is to run some good stress testing software (prime 95 etc....) in order to assure that your system is rock solid at the current settings so that you don't pull your hair out when you start to OC.

You can approach overclcoking c2d's quite seriously to milk the most performance out of the chip, or do it quickly and easily with a modest overclock. Truthfully, you can obtain a pretty good overclock on c2d's without much work or understanding of the process.

If you don't mind doing a bit of reading, though, I would recommend reading a couple of overclocking guides to get a background so that you learn the terms (you might already be familiar with them though).

I made a list of a few guides here that will get you started, then we can answer more specific questions once we know what page you're on and we're speaking the same language. If you really don't want to do alot of reading and learning about it, we could probably walk you through a modest overclock, but I would recommend getting the background if for no other reason than the enjoyment of the process.

I would recommend getting TAT (Intel's thermal analysis tool) a good temperature monitor with a combined stress tester.

ok ya i have all of the tools the prime 95 the cpu-z all that good stuff. If you could walk me through it that would be great because i'm not cpu illiterate i'll be able to cling onto what you say and i know the terms or atleast i think i know most of the OC terms. Ya i'm just striving to atleast clock it to 3.2 or 3.3 ghz. Since this is on stock cooling so i'd wanna be in a safe zone. I realize it'll prolly take you a while to respond i wish we could go through this in more of a real time.
