In need of help from the professionals!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I consider my self a newb, and just built my first computer recently.
I am very happy with the results I got.

My specs are
-i7 2600k (Hyper 212 Plus Cooler)
-ASRock Z68 Professional Gen3
-EVGA GTX 580
-Corsair Professional Series HX850
-Kingston HyperX 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3
-128 GB SSD
-1Tb HDD
-Fractal Design Define R3 Case

It's time to overclock the beast!
Atm my i7 2600k idles at 33c, and under full load hits about close the mid 50's.

I want to oc my cpu where I can have it at good temperatures, and have it 24/7 at that speed. Thinking of anything over 4.0ghz, as long as it is not passing over the 70c under full load. I only use this rig for games atm so I dont need any big oc'ing yet.

Like I said I am a newb at this, and any help will be appreciated.
Basically I need to know how to achieve those speeds, what settings to change on the bios, and etc.

Oh and by the way I have F-Stream Tuning, would that make it any easier?

Thank you very much fellow members! Bare with me!

Welcome to OCN!

Seems pretty straightforward, but if you have any specific questions that's what were here for

F-stream seems a bit flashy for my tastes but nevertheless a good asset.
