Another new guy needing help...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My Specs...

i5 3570k
MSI MPower Z77 BigBiang
XSPC CPU Watercooled - 2 Rad
MSI HD 7950 TwinF
16gig Corsire Vantage
120gig SSD
Open Phobya case

Im new to this overclock thing and was wanting some advice. All I have done so far is move the CPU ratio up to 43.

Using MSI Control Center It reads this...
4322.1MHz for my core speed and 35 - 41c temps idle


What does this mean and is it any good?

Thanks...

I would suggest doing some reading. This is a good guide, http://www.overclock.net/t/1247413/ivy-bridge-overclocking-guide-with-ln2-guide-at-the-end Look for other "OC Guides". I know for sure the Gigabyte one is good. Plus there is also an Ivy Bridge Assus guide. Not sure if there is a specific MSI one. They will get you spun up on things like prime95 and RealTemp. Warning, you might get hooked!!!
