Overclocking Order Question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys quick question about overclocking. I am not new to overclocking I just want to get my facts straight before I do my next overclock. I am planning on overclocking the CPU and NB while holding the ram at 1333 but try to tighten the timings. Which component should I work on first? Obviously I would raise the system clock as high as possible first but then what? Should I tighten timings then do the NB and finally the CPU or a different order all together?

Thx for the help!
Mike
