How do you overlock?
post #13 of 22
Before you buy, keep in mind that XFX cards are for the most part horrible overclockers. Don't expect to overclock your GPU much, or at all.

Not planning to overclock GPU, as I don't even have the knowledge to overclock CPU.
post #15 of 22
That is fairly simple albeit you'll need patience. But first get your rig altogether and running. There are a few guides on here on how to overclock Bulldozer/Piledriver CPU's.

Looks good! Have you considered a Hyper 212 CPU cooler though? Not sure how it compares with an Evercool, but I know I love my 212's. smile.gif

The 7870 XT is better than the 7870 (it's a cut down 7950) an this one is actually cheaper, deal ends today though

The 212 has better reviews and is quieter, so I will go with that instead. smile.gif

I can vouch for the FX6300. I have a 6350 that I just put in yesterday and I can play very comfortably on all high with my asus 5850 directcu card.
