Default 1st time Oc'ing

Hi, i have no experience with overclocking what so ever. All i know is it has to do with adjusting to voltage to make the cpu run faster. but i have a couple questioins:
Do you change the voltage in bios or cmos?
Do you have to disable any intigrated systems or anything in order to oc?
I have an intel e6400 and a gigabite 965P/G-DS4 mobo. how high (in voltage) do you think i couold get it?

look up the millions of tutorials online, then come back and ask questions.

Now now, don't be so hard on him.

Hi raoul_1101,

Do you change the voltage in bios or cmos?: If your motherboard can overclock the voltage, then you have to do it trough your bios. CMOS is something else, that has nothing to do with overclocking. Well... except if you screw it up.

Do you have to disable any intigrated systems or anything in order to oc? Not really. The easiest way to overclock is to go to your bios and overclock your FSB with 5 MHZ, but do this step by step. By that I mean overclock 5MHZ, reboot, test your system, then overclock again.

I have an intel e6400 and a gigabite 965P/G-DS4 mobo. how high (in voltage) do you think i couold get it?I can't answer to that.

ok, ive read up more than when i started the thread....
still a couple things i want to clear up:

This is a really rough understanding so far, but m trying to learn more. correct me where im wrong please...

I.There are two ways to OC your processor:
1. Increase the Multiplier. Although, most processors have locked
multipliers, so this usually cant be done
2. Increase the voltage in the BIOS (Vcore?). This will also increase the
voltage of other coponants, such as pci, pci-e, and agp cards, as well as
the ram.
a. This will cause, say, ddr2 800 ram to run at higher speeds, such as 810
mHz. Once youve increased the voltage enough, you can lower the
memory's voltage to bring it back down to, say, 800 mHz again.

It should be in Bios, if you can you don't want to mess with the voltage if your new to oc'ing and it will make it run warmer. First you would probably want to set the ram ratio to 1:1 and start to up the "FSB" up little by little to start. Look at Overclocking 101 it gives some detailed info.

What are your full system specs such as ram/cooler ect.?

Increasing the voltage alone wont higher the frequency, you actually have to higher the FSB and the voltage accordingly

evga 8800 640 mb
core 2 duo e6400
Gigabyte 965P/G-DS4
2 gb corsair ddr2 800 ram
thermaltake silent 775d, i think, running at about 29 degrees celcius

you up the voltage because... higher fsb requires more power to the cpu?

what does changing the ram ratio do?

Changing the fsb also overclocks the ram, by changing the ratio it helps you not to over overclock the ram. Just up the fsb for the cpu little at a time and you don't want to change the Vcore "voltage" unless you need to because you can OC with stock voltage but if it becomes unstable then you would need to up the voltage buy like .05 at a time. Like me mine stock is 2.8ghz, i have it at 3.27 with stock volts perfectly stable. Just an example because they are totally different cpu's.

Will changing the fsb also change the speed of my pci-e and pci ports?
If the ram ratio is set 1:1, will changing the fsb not overclock the ram at all?
So, i should up the fsb by .05-.1 at a time, until say, the computer no longer boots, and then raise the voltage (if i wanted to push the processor that far)?
