Default Newb to OC, need asus x58 deluxe v2 help

Hey all, i am new to this whole overclocking thing, and i have made this build solely to try and get into that foray. Here is what i have :

haf case
asus x58 deluxe v2 mobo
intel 920 batch 3841a713
true 120 extreme in push/pull with scythe ultra kaze 2000rpm
corsair 6gb ddr3 dominator 1600 8,8,8,24
nvidia 285 gtx
velociraptor 300, and samsung 320 7200

I have been trying to find a good i7 overclocking guide but i havnt really found one. I checked the stickies here but the guides dont look like they are for i7 which i know is more complex to overclock.

Other problem i had is what i have found tends to be for evga boards, since i have a asus i feel a little out of it. Most links for oc are for systems that are already done at 3.5+ghz, not really the process on how they GOT there.

The asus bios seems a bit confusing to me, as things are not matching up to what i am seeing on the evga links etc i have seen.

Please help, i want to get to at least 3 or 3.2 ghz to start with as this is going to be a 24/7 system, not looking to go crazy, just see how far i can take it and still be stable for a every day use.

You could try

bit-tech.net | Guide - Overclocking Intel's Core i7 920

There are some good reviews on the Asus X58 deluxe that have good detail on the BIOS settings, try this

Asus P6T Deluxe OC Edition Review - Overclockers Club

Can't help much more than that as I don't have one yet... maybe later this year or early next year, wife willing!

I have similar system like Technokat, except the True. I am using Noctua. Just finished building my rig and also looking into the OC stuff.

I am sure there are tons of info out there, but this should be a good start.
