    All I can say is buy a new fan before your play. Do not use the fan that came with your AMD64. Slight overclocking may be safe with that fan but a drastic overclock then your risking processor burn out. If your MB will overclock then you should be able to find some info in the manual or on the web site. Also be aware that an incorrect setting can cause the system to not boot. That is ok nothing is fried. You just need to know your MB key combo to recover from something like that. Overall just experiment and you will find the right combo. I stress the new fan.
