How do I use MSI OC genie?
How do I properly use the MSI overclock genie? Please walk me through this. There are Four buttons on the bottom of the motherboard. Which ones do I press and in what order?

I have a Core i7 930 @ 2.8 GHz, I have a ZALMAN CNPS9900 cooler and heatsink. A 3.4 or 3.5 GHz OC shouldn't be so hard.

The one that says "OC GENIE"

Turn the computer off. Press the OC GENIE button (it will stay 'in'). Turn on the computer. It really is that simple. You can watch they 'do' that in the video as well.

The '+' and '-' buttons are referred to as "direct OC". They will actually adjust your base clock while your computer is running.

Overclocked by how much? I can't reach 4.0 GHz with my cooler (ZALMAN CNPS9900) does it overclock my RAM as well? 3.4 or 3.5 GHz shouldn't be too hard.

Is this safe? Or is my hardware going to be damaged/ruined by this OC genie process?

The OC genie will moderately and safely overclock it, just keep an eye on CPU temps.You can check your CPU speed with CPU-Z: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

Don't worry, it won't give you an unsafe overclock, it won't be near what regular tweaking can do, you should have nothing to worry about. I can't tell you how much, you'll have to check your self, every CPU is different so open up CPU-Z and see what the OC is.
