Don't consider it if you don't want to risk making your system unstable, frequent crashes, and even damaged hardware.

If this was a factory built system then I would say it was not possible or at least not practical, but if like a suspect from your specs this is a system that was built. It is VERY possible to overclock your system with stability if you are reasonable about what you are trying to achieve and careful about going step by step and testing for stability as you proceed. I have overclocked 4 set ups, two are currently in use and all are/were stable for everyday usage. I probably have less crashes than the average user because I am more careful about keeping the system clean (build up of junk) and I periodically monitor temperatures. I have only OC'd Intel P4's through Core 2 Duos so I would not be the best to give you specifics on your system, but someone should be around soon to answer you more specifically. In the mean time use Google to find out more information on overclocking and on your board and CPU. Use terms like "overclock Athlon 64 X2 5400+ and EMX-AMD780G-PRO+". Read, Read, Read.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
