I believe you'll also get the same answer everyone gets. Don't overclock unless you have read up on it first. Your system is capable. But no "click here" options will ever be suggested. You simply won't know what the click is doing, and you really want...and need to know. Enjoy that system as is for now. Spend some time reading up on theory, methodology, and know what it is you are doing. Once you have that knowledge, then you can ask specific questions. A Guy

In short, not a chance.

If you only want to OC a little bit, I would not even bother with it.

The benefit of a minor overclock is really barely noticeable.

Some boards actaully do come with software (Gigabyte's EasyTune6) or has software that can be downloaded (Intel's Desktop Control Center)

I'm quite sure (would be shocked if they didn't) Asus has something similiar to those mentioned.

They're designed for simple overclocks. Nothing extreme. Do I use and recommend them...no. Do I overclock... yes.

The auto OC programs always set the voltages too high and cause excess heat.

Much better to read up on it, you need to know the basics, check youtube for basic OC tutorials. Just keep in mind that not all CPUs, RAM, motherboards OC the same, you may run into errors/crashes following someone else's OC.

RAM, motherboards and OC forums have basic OC tutorials. Check these for the basics to get you started.

Here is a OC guide.
