New member, new build, just sayin' hi! - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
Thanks everyone!

Yeah, I know that the PSU is overkill, but that said, I'm planning on adding a second GPU, 3 more hard drives, a sound card and another 8 gb of RAM. It'll wind up still being a bit overkill, but... I'd rather have more than enough.

And I doubt I'll be OC'ing the GPUs in it. Probably will bump the CPU to 4.0/4.2 GHz and then just leave it alone.

Anyway, thanks for the welcomes! I'll fill in my rig info shortly.

e; So the GPU is factory "superclocked." I guess I should say that I won't be OC'ing beyond factory there.

You can definitely OC the CPU past 4.2...I got mine to 4.6 without even touching the voltage settings and it was running fine for me...however, if you want to be safe, just go to 4.4.

BTW here on OCN, overkill isn't the exception, its the norm.
