could someone re-direct me on how to learn....
well I have my rig put together finally today, and im trying to figure out where to begin learning when it comes to Over clocking DFI boards. I have:
dfi nf4 ultra-d board
ocz 520w powerstream
512 x 2 ocz vx 3200 gold
pci-e ati x800xl
all on air.
I have no clue honestly where to beggin with over clocking this I have read and understand over clocking just have never attempted to apply it. and I would like to do everything right if possible. Can someone re-direct me to a good read/link on where to beggin with over clocking this board. I figure everyone here had to learn some how so hopefully someone can help me out. thanks in advnace.
go to the best of amd section, that's where ull find most the mobo specific threads

yep, guides and tweaks, tips, etc would be found there.
Look through the threads on different A64 tweaker timings people have posted, that will come in handy with overclocking your RAM possibly.
Another item to remember is to overclock one component at a time. This is especially true in your case because your system is new and you do not have an idea of how each of your components perform. I would start first by overclocking the CPU. Find your maximum CPU overclock while trying to keep your RAM as close to stock speed as possible. Once you have that figured out, make a note of it and move on to the RAM. Find your maximum RAM overclock while trying to keep your CPU as close to stock speed as possible. From there, you can balance everything out and come up with a sweet spot for best overall system performance. After all is said and done, move on to your video card.

There should be something in the BIOS on changing the CPU Multiplier, as well as dividers, etc. There are different BIOSes that are optimized for different RAM types, you may want to find one for Winbond chips.
