Hi all

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Im new to the forum,
Just finished building my first o.c rig / htpc and thought i'd share my results.

Hardware:
MoBo
Asus P5G41T-M LX
Ram
2x A-RAM 2GB DDR3 PC-10600 (1333MHz) , VALUE series (4gb total)
CPU
Core 2 Duo E8400 (3.0ghz)
PSU
Aywun 650W MEGA Power ECO Series
GPU
Power Color HD6750 1G DDR3 128bit
Others
Hauppauge Wintv HVR 1200 & Remote Kit

Software:
WinXP Pro, Media Portal + games & diagnostic tools

I currently have cpu overclocked to 3.45ghz at a cool and stable 28 degrees celcius at idle and around 40 degrees under full load.
This was done with the automatic overclock settings in the bios set to 15%, I tried getting 3.6ghz with manual settings a few times
but failed miserably. I know the cpu could handle temperature increase but after a bit of research it seems the motherboard cant really
be pushed much further.

Im a noob to overclocking so if anyone has any hints on pushing this cpu any further they'd be more than welcome.
