How far to overclock with my setup.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, up till now ive had a 2600 but being a avid reader of this site it quickly became not enough i had to buy the 2600k!. So did

I currently have a corsair hx750w psu as well as a 6990 which is not currently overclocked. That being said 750w probably doesnt give me a whole lot of leg room atm but seeing as i have never overclocked my pc before do you think i will be fine taking my 2600k up to say 4.5ghz?

Also i bought the corsair h80 to go with it!

Thanks!

Your PSU is plenty! Don't limit yourself on that account. Good luck - like steveace said, 4.8Ghz+ should be a realistic goal.

For 24/7... 4.8Ghz is pushing it, but 4.5Ghz on an H100 for 24/7 should be perfectly fine!
