In this instructables I will show you how to overclock a Raspberry Pi.
You don't need a heat sink or a fan, because the temperautre won't go over the 50-60 C (120-140 F).
Please vote for me in the Raspberry Pi contest.
Good luck with overclocking!

If you have already installed Raspbian you can skip this step.
For installing Raspbian you will need a 4gb SD card, a Raspbian raw image and Win32DiskImager (Windows) or dd command (Linux) or Rpi-SD card builder (Mac Os X).
Imaging the SD card
1. Download and install Win32DiskImager
2. Insert your SD card and open Win32DiskImager
3. Unzip the 201X-XX-XX-wheezy-raspbian.zip file (X is the date of your download)
4. Select the .IMG and select the correct device (!)
5. Now the SD card has the Raspbian Image
1. Start the terminal
2. Go to your downloaded .ZIP file
3. Use $ unzip ~/201X-XX-XX-wheezy-raspbian.zip (X is the date of your download)
4. Run $ df -h to see what devices are currently mounted
5. Insert your SD card
6. Run $ df -h again, the new device is your SD card
7. Unmount your SD card with $ umount /dev/xxxx (xxxx is your device)
8. Now write the image to your SD card with $ dd bs=4M if=~/201X-XX-XX-wheezy-raspbian.img of=/dev/xxx (xxx is your device)
9. The SD card has now the Raspbian Image
Mac OS X
1. Download and install RPi-sd card builder
2. Unzip 201X-XX-XX-wheezy-raspbian.zip file
3. Run the app and select the .IMG file
4. It will ask you if the SD card is connected, insert your SD card and press continue
5. Select your SD card
6. It will ask you to enter your administrator password, enter it
7. Look if your SD card is unmounted and press continue
8. After a while it says complete
9. Your SD card has now the Raspbian Image
Installing Raspbian on your Raspberry
1. Insert your SD card into your Raspberry Pi and connect your screen
2. Plugin your power, your Raspberry will turn on and boot Raspbian for the first time
3. You will get some options, you can skip them but I recommend that you select 1. Expand filesystem otherwise you will run out of memory and 3. Enable Boot to Desktop, I prefer the command line for overclocking.
4. Select finish, you will now be in the command line
5. Raspbian is now installed
