Before jumping into overclocking your gear you should read up on what it means and how to do it properly as well as the risks. There are great forums dedicated to overclocking that would be a great place to read up on this stuff. Overclockers.net and overclockers.com are two that come to mind but there are plenty of others if you do a search for overclocking.

One thing that jumps out at me is your CPU is 44C. That's already too hot if that is an idle temp. Once you start overcloking things heat up even more so you need to get cooling under control before you even think about overclocking or you will start running into problems straight away. ;)

Good lookin' heatsink there. 56 degrees is really hot actually :O

Make sure any heatsink you get that stands up high like that will fit into your case. The one 123456 linked to shows 142.7mm high. That should be from the bottom of the heatsink where it touches the CPU to the top of the heatsink. So make sure you have at least that much room from the CPU to the side of the case. It's worth also checking the other dimensions to make sure you won't bump into anything else in the case.

Something wrong here...........Why not 2 x 2gigs Pc2 5300 in dual channel? as your Window 7 64 bit will see 4 gigs..............and your DX!!....How come you are using DX9.0c for? Your GPU is DX10.1 and windows 7 will recognize DX11

No need to OC this puppy till you see about the rest of it first......

Hey man last month I added 1GB of ram changed my graphic card (DX10.1)and my PSU to a coolermaster 500watt.
I dont really know why did I install a 64 bit windows !!!!!:o
Now that i know(feeling so dumb :mad: )..Is it dangerous to use a 64bit windows when I have 2x1GB 4300's and 1X1GB 6400?
Like should I go back to 32bit?
And can you please explain me the directX part.Everest shows directx 9.0c??? My card is 10.1 and when I go to "dxdiag" it shows that I have dx 11 lol ?
Thank you !

Hey don't feel dumb...first off....nothing wrong with 64 bit as it will use 4 gigs of RAM if you have it and 32 bit will only use 3 gigs....the 6400 will be back compatable and step down...but it does help to have a balanced set in dual channel...(down to 4300)......2 x 2gigs x 5300...you are not using your full RAM values yet is why I asked why are your OC'ing, first things first, some games will always play in DX 9.0c but you will be capable of playing DX10. It should be installed with your windows 7...............and your video card is not very powerful for todays games...see here...

you will have lag with today online games but could play older ones
