Help whit overclock(FX-8350)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I'm new to this whole overclocking thing, I've heard it's like free performance.
So I thought I would give it a shot, I have an FX 8350,
My Specs are:
AMD FX-8350
Termaltake NiC C4 CPU cooler
ASUS M5A95 R2.0
AMD Radeon HD 7950 GPU@925-1200MHz/MEM@1450MHz
Seagate Barracuda 2TB
Raidmax 730W PSU

I've calculated that I draw about 670W~700W(don't know too surely because not very efficient PSU)
I want to know how to OC to 4.5GHz,4.6GHz,4.7GHz and how much will it draw power then.

I would not oc or run that Raidmax in that rig. Raidmax is not a good PSU.

But if the PSU goes down it can take the rest of your rig with it.

EDIT
This will help you.
