New System and potential overclock target of 4.5GHz

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello

First of all this site is awesome, very informative with lots of helpful people

I recently bought a new system which will be used mainly for gaming with a little office type work. The specs are as follows:

Intel sandy bridge Core I5-2500K

Kingston DDR3 8GB 1600MHz Gaming Performance HyperX Memory Kit (2x4GB) CL9 Non-ECC Dimm

ASUS P8Z68-M PRO INTEL Z68mATX

EVGA GEFORCE GTX570 ds 1.2 GB GDR5 (Dual fans version)

Win 7 HOME premium 64 bit English

Green 750W ANTEC PSU 80 Plus BRZ

ANTEC 900 Gaming cases, (4 cooling fans)

Antec K├╝hler H2O 620 Liquid Cooling System

Samsung 22x SATA DVD writer

Well I am hoping to overclock this to as close to 4,5GHz as possible but I am hesitant to begin without knowing if the system specs are up to the task. Also I have never o/c'ed anything before and although I am trying to learn as fast and as much as I can I was wondering if anyone can recommend a good guide to follow? I do have a rough idea how to start but I am hoping for some reassuring advice before I begin.

Thanks in advance and best wishes for the coming New Year!

Small wonder.

well then hit up the sandy stable club and read! It has all the information you need. Just make sure you monitor your temps and you should be fine I would hyper link you but I can't do that on my touchpad
