Help Oveclocking Build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,
When I built my computer, I tried to overclock using the SB-E Overclock Guide on the forum, but every time I tried something, something else went wrong. Eventually, I just defaulted to a few setting changes that I didn't really understand and selecting "auto" in my bios. Could anyone who's familiar with the hardware in my PC give me a hand making my computer the best it can be? I'd really appreciate it. I have my build listed in the rigbuilder, and I took screenshots of CPU-Z and GPU-Z.
Thanks,
Joe

I'd suggest watching some tutorials on youtube.Sometimes videos are a lot more helpful and easier to follow.

One of your issue could be your ram. The memory controller for SB-E is not the worlds greatest. Normally the less stick of ram you have, the easier your overclocking is.

If you could post what sort of OC you want to shoot for, and your BIOS settings, that would be very helpful.

I took a bunch of screenshots of my bios settings and uploaded them with this post.

I'm actually not sure what kind of OC I even want. I guess I just want to make it as fast/powerful as I can without threatening the lifespan of my hardware too much. One thing I would like to do for sure is get Skyrim to run at full graphics without dropping below 60 fps, but I'm not sure if my GPU can even handle that.
Thanks for the responses, guys. I'll try to get back quicker next time.
