Hey guys. I'm new to OC'ing (not new to computers) and was hoping for some suggestions for juicing up my rig. It's listed as snarf in my signature. I've been using AI Suite auto settings and it's basically sitting right at 4.4 and idling around 24 degrees C maxing out under 60 degrees under stress test.

Full list of ingredients:

HAF X Full tower with huge front, side and rear fans
Sabertooth p67 mobo
Intel i7 2600k (haven't overclocked yet, but can if you want)
Radeon HD 7970 3G graphics card
16G Crucial Ballistix Tactical RAM 7-7-7-24
Vertex 3 120G SSD for apps and boot
1T Western Digital HDD for storage
300 Mb/sWiFi b/g/n card w/ 3 antennas
NZXT SEN-001LX Sentry LX Aluminum dual bay fan controller
XSPC Rasa 750 rx360 water cooling kit with 360mm Radiator and 3 120mm fans, clear 7/16" lines with blue uv reactive coolant
2 12" uv cold cathodes
Windows 7 Pro x64


Suggestions on how to ramp up the numbers without killing a $300 cpu?

Thanks!!biggrin.gif
