Hey guys!!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My last computer died on me the other month and I decided to do it right this time and build my first computer in over ten years. I'm completely new to overclocking so please don't mind my n00b questions.

Prime 95 is stability testing software for your CPU and Ram you can easily find it by googleing.
You should also check other threads which programs are must when overclocking.
What I'm using is: Prime 95-stability test, HW monitor- temp monitoring, Real Temp-core monitoring, Super PI (1mil)- fast check for cpu 1core speed and CPUID for CPU performance (voltage,fsb speed, multipler).
