"The Stream Machine"

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm pretty new hear. I started a introduction thread HERE which u all are welcome to check out.. It's been awhile since i had any projects, but because of a new job I landed a few months back i got a few extra dollars here and there. So like any man I like my gadgets. i started the build on this rig probably back at the first of November i had all parts by the 15th. i'm slowly starting up again and I wanna overclock this cpu. Like most ppl with the FX i'm kinda disappointed but these things are built to OC. I'm not real sure where to set a goal to reach. 4Ghz, 4.5Ghz, **** maybe 5Ghz. i been tossing the idea of letting u guys build the cooling system on this thing. what do u guys think? whats the best set up to go with to get the most out of my rig? Air cooled? Water cooled? i hear great things about Noctua NH-D14. i hear EK has some awsome water blocks. i hear alot of stuff but what is gonna get the most out of what i got? whats overkill? whats not enough? i also think my ram is not up to par. should i ditch the ram and get better. and is the 6970 enough for two 32 inch tv's runing 1080i running 1920x1080?
