Ok thanks! Wow.. very welcoming,, by the way, my CPU cooler should be waiting for me when i get home


It is this
Scythe SCSMZ-2000 92mm Sleeve CPU Cooler


Maybe i should put that under cpu cooling under my settings? Or should i wait untill i install it?

BAAAHahaha

yeah i know, well,i spent all my $$$ thats all i could afford at that point...I dont do ANY gaming or even watch vids from my pc...

All i use my monitor for is just for regular stuff... Which probably makes you wonder why i want to OC...

Well.. i just want it to crank!!! i do alot of vid encoding, and run multiple progs at the same time... a couple of the progs are known for eating cpu,so i just want to rip on my pc with no bs and waiting....
