Needing a little direction...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, my names Steve and I'm new to overclock.net. I have been building computers for quite some time now, but mostly just lower end gaming computers. I'm finally tired of building small little throw away pc's and want to start getting into the more active side of things. I have recently purchased a monster of a machine and have done some minor overclocking. I am basically looking for some advice as to my clocks, stability, and any kind of input or advice on general questions about my build. So far I have been able to OC the FSB to 233 RAM at 1864 CPU is only running 6 cores and is at 4.66GHz at 55°C RAM timings are at 10-11-10-30. I'm basically wondering if I can OC my ram any further? Also, Should I try pushing my FSB any further or does that seem like a good value for the clocks I am achieving. Any help or pointing to the right direction would be nice. My system specs are as fallows.
