Hi OCN - New here.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I've only recently truly been wanting to get into OCing, but I'm not sure if my equipment can handle it, or it's potentials.

My Mobo. Talks about having 'easy OC potential'.

Air cooler on the CPU.

My RAM.

Don't have link of Power-supply, but it's Cooler Master 750W. (560ti for video card.)

I'm wondering if I could get my processor to maybe 3.1-3.3 no problem? Some people have said this mobo "doesn't seem to support OC" but I've seen a lot of people who have OC'd it. One YouTube-er did almost this exact setup and took the processor to 3.55GHZ but he likely had a better cooling system than I.

Any help would be great - Trying to see how to do it, as well. People keep talking about buffers and such to set, but I've yet to even look at the ASRock "BIOS" OC settings they talk about. Maybe I'll check 'em out this weekend.

I believe so, it should be able to get to at least 3.3 Ghz no problem. The air cooler used is extremely good. I am actually running it, then again, my CPU is sadly locked...If I were you I would overclock it all, and then start looking for a new motherboard and cpu combo. AM3+ looks nice, they easily hit 4.5 Ghz+ with air. So upgrades are good too with that cooler! Hope this helps somewhat!

Ahh, my apologies. Was speed posting before I ran out the door. I'll move it over now.
