how to improve upon this build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just bought a new thermaltake tower and water cooling kit, I have a Corsair TX850W Power supply. My question is how to make this system run faster? I am not that well versed on overclocking or even if I should with my current setup. I would like some feedback to see where or if I have went wrong somewhere in this build. It runs okay but I do not think I have even touched the potential of this beast.redface.gif

Your chip should run some where around 4.0 to 4.2.................if i was going to change any thing right away......i would change out the board to a 990 chip set .......overclocking has alot to do with the board
i like the Biostar TA990FXE if your on a budget about $129, and moving up Asus Sabertooth about $189 bucks and then
Asus Crossfire about $229 all of these overclock very well ! but i would def go to a 990 chip set .

Thanks, I will look into a new board asap. I wish i knew a little about overclocking because all I know how to use is the auto clock feature on overdrive but it always crashes. I do not want to mess nothing up until I can become more versed in overclocking.

and this is also a very good reason to buy high end boards when your going to be doing some overclocking , The higher end boards normally have better bios controls and functions wich makes them very simple to use .and i think Asus has the best bios out there . on Overdrive try to do it manually , been awhile since i used it . i believe it tests the pc ounce then you can use the multiplier in it aprox 20 to 22 x .....You should look on you tube i think overdrive is on there , some one using it . I will look after dinner and chime back in .

Ok i was just messin with overdrive and in novice mode , you click auto tune and it goes through and stresses the cpu and it will crash it then it reboots and from there you can apply the settings , i believe the advanced mode is close to the same with just more options for voltage and such . this is what oi just got messing around with it and its stable for BF3 , i played a lil no problems .and also please note I Run a Biostar TA890FXE Board cost was $129.00 and was there top of the line before the 990 thumb.gif
