Overclocking AMD Phenom II 550BE on a MSI 790GX-G65 Mobo

Today is crank up day for my system which also has 4GB (2x2GB) Kingston HyperX 1600 DDR3 memory... Starting at 3.1GHz, hoping to get to @3.8 to 3.9GHz while system being cooled by Prolimatech Megahalems with push/pull Scythe slipstream 1,900 RPM and 138CFG rated fans...and 7 case fans.....no problem. Any thoughts?

Thanks for the links to pasting and OC'ing! I did the BB size drop and manually spread the TIM with finger in a sandwich bag...works great!
