post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hi all..
I;m trying to decide if i should overclock this new processor. I recently b uilt a new computer as my old one was getting more dust on it then a lint roll.
Heres what i have now.
I7 2600k
asus p8z68v
ocz zs series 750w psu
8gb corsair vengeance ddr3 1600 cl9 2x4gb sticks
crappy but free xfx 6750 hd gpu
60gb ssd
windows 7 ulti 64

I used the program that comes with the motherboard for doing a overclock but the system just seems to run kinda slow being being some good parts.

Any good reding and suggestions for doing a bios overclock on the cpu and ram????

:: you have all that good hardware ..and are "wondering" if you should OC it? : ..given the hardware you have..it's ..an inevitability :: umm..use cpu-z to find out your ram speed/timings..(under the memory tab)

here's a link to a good guide..

I have that cooler, it its good and these sandy bridge chips are so easy to overclock. I'm surprised you are even asking this question.

If anyone comes into this thread and says you shouldn't overclock, this person should be banned from ocn for committing blasphemy.

i agree... I built this with the thought in mind to overclock. after with talking to other people on a diff site, was gonna get the osrock board and i52500k but the deal price i got at microcenter for the i7 and this board i couldnt pass it up. Just wish i could afford a good video card.

I had a xfx 9800gt card that took a crap on me and the hd 6750 was a freebie replacement card from xfx. Would like to get the 6950 but its just out reach with budget right now. I have my old computer that i have for sale on craigslist right now so who knows. if i can get a couple hundred bucks for it, then i could afford a great card..
I mean it has a ep43udl3 board from gigabyte a q6600 antec 900 case some basic ram turboblue cooler and apieva 900w warlock psu. so im hoping a few bucks from it...
I still have to go buy windows 7 ultimate the copy a friend let me borrow isnt good. Hoping maybe that is some causes for poor benchmark scores... p2505 on 3d mark 11 seems kinda low i thought since ive seen people reaching 18-20k..
