Am i in for a treat, as they say??
What im wondering is how is the best way to check that al my components are good for overcloking? check ram, cpu etc?
how can i test this? i got me 16gb Vengeance low profile 9-9-9-24 BTW is this good for my board+cpu??
unfortunately they did not have my cooler, the D14 in stock, so have to wait uintil they get it back...
THNX!!! VERY EXITED xD
Newegg has the NH-D14 in stock, I'm not sure if you were looking at newegg or not.
As for overclocking, it seems that you definitely have the right processor to do it. Are you thinking of overclocking everything, like CPU, RAM, and GPU? If so, I have heard that the samsung RAM has incredible overclocking abilities and GPU wise you should be able to tweak depending on your card.
The RAM should be fine, I would just make sure that you have enough room installing the D14 with that RAM, as the heat spreaders are tall. I am speaking from experience with my G. Skill RAM that had tall heat spreaders and it was a tight squeeze with the D14, but it did fit. The other thing to be wary about is if you are getting RAM that is 1866 or 2133, I would double check the compatibility with the Z77 so you know if you can run the RAM at that speed. My RAM wasn't suited to run at 2400, according to the compatibility list, but I did get it working with the XMP.
