New to overclock.net and new technology!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone. I'm new to this site, but I assume I'm in the right place for overclocking info. smile.gif I haven't tried to overclock in years, and this new build I have now is only 3 weeks old. All this new stuff I have compared, to my old 7+ year old custom build is a little overwhelming. I finally got this thing fine tuned and everything. But.. now to the next step.. you guessed it, OVERCLOCKING! Feel free to review my specs and point me in the right direction. I honestly ONLY want to OC my CPU and GPU. At least until I get this OC'ing down to a science. I don't have $ to burn, so I cannot go out and buy new stuff if something fries lol. I'd like to get info/help from people who have the same/similar motherboards, CPU's and GPU. That way, at least the BIOS will be the same as mine. Really do not know where to begin. I have downloaded some programs for testing the OC. Anyhow, Glad to be here and hope to keep coming back! thumb.gif

http://www.overclock.net/t/1401976/the-gigabyte-z87-haswell-overclocking-oc-guide check out the haswell guide first.

Guide to your board http://www.overclock.net/t/1396921/msi-z87-thread-xpower-mpower-max-bios-screens-and-info

EDIT: As for a guide for the 760, I am looking for one... What I do to my 480 is use MSI afterburner and a couple stress tests to see what it is stable at.... I usually find an hour of gaming can tell you this to when I was in a rush to find a stable OC, as I would get a direct x error or driver error on BF3 after about 30-40 minutes... Which I do not recommend doing

good luck! Welcome to the site! And pics of your build please! thumb.gif

Thank you! I saw some short you tube videos on it, with my exact board and cpu. Didn't really help me out that much. Watched Linus tech tips vidoe also.. explained a little bit more, but again.. didn't help all that much due to different boards. I thought the pics of my build were uploaded? I can see them. They are in avatars. Haven't really figured out this site yet LOL.
