Sabertooth paired with 960t

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Long time listener first time caller!!! I just registered to the forum and I have a 960t just waiting to be placed in my new sabertooth that arrives on Friday from newegg. Also will be putting in a new Kingston Hyper X 120g ssd all at the same time. Hopefully its a smooth transition, this will be my first real attempt at overclocking. I've read several threads on overclocking and a few with the 960t. I have a Coolermaster hyper tx3 for cooling and it will be fitted in a haf 912. Wish me luck at the end of the week and im sure i will be asking many O.C. questions.

Thanks again!!

Yes this will be my first time overclocking a cpu, Ive always overclocked my video cards but never my cpu. Im trying not to go crazy and just buy buy buy, I only have an XFX 6870 video card for right now but im pleasently suprised how well it performs giving thats its a few year old technology and a low mid range card.

Ok, all my parts arrived yesterday kingston hyper x 3k 120g, Asus Sabertooth, and a fresh windows 7. Installed everything last night, got it up and running and so far im pleased. I have a WD 1.5tb greenie that had a windows 7 oem attached to a different mobo so im still figuring out how to make my programs work using that drive while keeping my ssd as a boot drive. And far as the O.C. goes I didnt really try last night but as I am typing this I have been running prime for 35 minutes at 4 ghz @ cpu says 49c and the cores show 41c. All I did was take my multiplier up to 20 and adjusted Vcore to 1.38v. Oh yeah and btw I did try to unlock the additional cores and it worked without any hic ups smile.gif cpuz says its a 1605t i believe...cant remember, it was very late.
