installing windows 7

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Anyone know how one loads up win 7 64 bit after they built their computer?
Is it just power up, insert disc, follow prompts?

Yes, more or less. You might want to hop into the BIOS and your SATA ports are set to AHCI mode. From my experience, most motherboards will boot from DVD before the hard drive by default, so you shouldn't have to change that setting.

does the ASRock P67 PRO3 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard have bios that can be overclocked through it?

Yes, the BIOS will have overclocking settings.

The BIOS should have options for overclocking the CPU, RAM, and probably some chipset frequencies. You'll have to use software for overclocking the GPU. But, yes, CPU and GPU are the two main things overclockers focus on.

so with a system in a haf942 case w/ 10 fans , and the cpu has an awsome heatsink (what its called the big fin looking thing with tubes going through it and a beast fan through it). the cpu is the sb i5 2500k what speed should i look into pushing it around 1.38v like 4.4ghz?

From what I've seen, you may be able to get to 4.5Ghz at less than 1.38v. Some hit 4.5 at less than 1.3v.

It doesn't works like that... When OCing you push your CPU a bit and a bit more and more until temp reaches a certain level when stressed, e.g. 65-70°C. Then you undervolt until computer crashes.
