    I got every thing on this list but my ram and my keyboard/mouse and that case fan . I think there arriving today but i Really want to ask if it is a good idea to over-clock or unlock cores , so far i just let the computer run even though it dosent have any ram yet and it seems to be very very cool. I really like that this case had a blue glowing light on the power button but i need advice on replacing the blue led with a red one and adding a greed led to the hdd led display.

    Well, there is a difference between sensible overclocking and ridiculous overclocking. A moderate overclock will essentially get performance for free, as most chips are built to go beyond what speed they are sold at. Ridiculous overclocking is usually done by people just to see how much speed they can get out of a chip. It isn't done for a main, continuous running system.

    That Athlon II should overclock fairly nicely. If you want a guide to overclocking, this will serve you well.
