It's business time. New rig ready to get OC.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

My old rig just died on me the other day. Sad day indeed. I cried for a minute or two and then I realize... It was time to get myself a brand new rig!

My old rig latest me over 7 years... and was still running current-gen games at decent settings. I had updated the video card a few times and upgraded the memory as well, but I think it was time to start over. So that's what I did.

Here's my current rig:

Fractal Design Define R4 Titanium Grey ATX Mid-Tower
Corsair Enthusiast Series TX850 V2
Asus P8Z77-V DELUXE
Intel i7 3770K / Cooled with Corsair H80
Corsair Vengeance 32GB Kit DDR3-1600
Asus GTX680 2GB DirectCU II TOP


I'm keeping my old hard drive for now but this will be my next step.

I think I can hit 4.8GHz with this thing if done properly and OC the **** out of this VC.

What do you guys think? tongue.gif

Welcome to OCN.
Here is how to get your rig in your posts, it makes it easier for people to help:

I have the same chip, and I have an Asus motherboard. I would recommend you follow this guide for overclocking:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1291703/ivy-bridge-overclocking-guide-asus-motherboards

Once you read through the guide, you will be able ask specific question and get help with whatever you need.

If someone posts something that helps you that is what the +rep button is for which is explained here:

Good luck!
