Okay well about time I give it a go I guess, not getting as much out of my rig as I should be able to so time to take the plunge and learn to overclock!

Going to put everything in here, welcome any comments, advice, encouragement! :p

Hmm first hurdle (hehe)...how do I open saved .3dr files - saved some 3DMark06 results and can't open them now - could have sworn I opened one earlier with 3DMark, now I just get an error.

EDIT - ah okay they have to be in the program directory for it to open them...sorted. :D

Woohoo...my first overclock...a tiny step but I'm on my way.

Original CPU-Z clocks...

Core 2405
Mult 12
Bus 200
HT 1000

New CPU-Z clocks...

Core 2460
Mult 12
Bus 205
HT 410

The only thing I don't understand is why the HT has gone from 1000 to 410, can anyone explain?
