New To the OC world

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey All,
I'm new to the forum and OC'in in general.
Just wondering if i can get some tips on OC'in my setup
AMD 4100
Gigabyte GA-970-A-UD3 Rev 1.01
8 GIG Corsair Ram @ 1866
GPU NVidia 8500 GT @ 1GiG DDr2

The BIos is at 200 Mghz as a FSB (Default)
but can head up to 500, also what other changes can I make to play with this a bit.
Thanks for all the help and am looking forward to everyone's help and results...
Thanks,

Vinny

Yes I agree, eager to do so without breaking anything...
Budget is maxed on this one!

Question, simply pulling up a CPU-z and matching the voltage setting(s) are, is that what I should do?
incrementally of course, while watching the core temp rate all from the Bios?

Thanks,

You can use other peoples settings yes but be careful because differences in boards and cooling and air flow etc can mean that one persons settings don't work for you!

Just go it alone and use other peoples settings as a guide rather than a direct port onto your machine.
