The overclocking was extremely easy. it took me only 5 minutes to get it running at 4.2Ghz up from the default 3.5GHz and also to set the ram to 2400 and then to 2666. i have attached the screenshots below of some of the settings i changed to achieve these settings. These can be used as a template but do remember not all CPU/RAM ic’s are made equally and that your mileage will probably vary.
