Ok I need help in overclocking. Where should i start from. Should I just go toBios setting and change all the settings to max.
Only set them to the max if you want to kill that pc post haste. Overclocking is something you can't be overambitious with. Read the tutorials that others have provided links to and then start out slowly. And like has been said, definitely invest in a larger PSU and a better HSF (assuming you're using the stock HSF).

Additionally, you can read Guide to Overclocking the Core I7 920 to 4.0ghz - -
