Hi all. After over 15 years of building 100's of systems, I am ready to start OC'ing. Here is my base. Not trying to break records or achieve this weeks bragging rights. But I do want to take the i7 860 to a rock solid 4GHz that could stand doing video encoding for 16 hours per day. GPU gaming performance is of a non issue. Video editing and encoding IS.

CM Storm Sniper Black Case
CM V10 Active Peltier Effect CPU & Memory Cooling system
Asus P7P55D EVO
Intel i7 860 (LGS1156)
OCZ (still figuring this one out)
XFX GTS-250 PCIe 2.0, 1GB GDDR3
Dual Acer 27" 2048 x 1152 Displays (4096 x 1152 Desktop)
Corsair HX850W Single Rail 12v, 7 Year Warranty
LG WH08 LS20 Blu-Ray Writer 8X BD-R
Intel X25-M 160GB SSD 2nd Generation (OS & Apps)
4 x 1.5TB Seagate HD on Intel ICH10R Raid 0 (Media Files)
Windows 7 64 Ultimate

I am open to being pointed in the right direction -

Hi and welcome to OCN. Notice the cpu's of the first 3 responses..? You came to the right place--few hours of work and that i7 will be screaming.

Enjoy your stay here.

Edit: After filling in your specs head over to the Intel CPUs Section and have a look at some of the threads/guides. There's an i7 guide there. If you get confused, start a thread. Good luck.
