Hello

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well, I've been browsing for a few days, and decided to sign up. Here is to hoping my budget build shows up in the sig. I built this from a barebones kit from Tigerdirect. In short it is an Anthon II X3 based system, which I first unlocked the fourth core, immediately after building. It has been running at 3.2 ghz since the build (first week of May 2013), but about a week ago I decided I wanted to switch to a water cooler (mostly due to finding one for 24.99 at TD as well, and it being my birthday at the end of the month). Since I've heard about water cooling capabilities I decided to overclock. After reading lots of beginners guides I decided to go ahead and give it a try.

At first I only raised the FSB 100 mhz or so. I tested with Prime 95 for at least 30 minutes after each time, and finally landed on 3.8 ghz. Looking at the amazing temps I was getting, I decided to go to 4.0 ghz (which is where I am now). At 4 ghz my machine is stable (ish)...which means it will pass the AIDA 64 stress test, but not Prime 95 blend, and absolutely I have no bsods. Raising the ram voltage a little made it last longer in Prime 95, so I'm thinking that is the issue. Also cpu intensive programs work fine. AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 loaded quickly, and without issues. I've been using it at 4 ghz for about 8 hours without issue.

The Cooler master Seidon 120M is a decent little water cooler, especially for those new to watercooling, such as myself. It is very effective. Right now as I am writing this my core temp is only 21 degrees C (while stress testing with AIDA 64).


Anyway, I think I have written too much for just an introduction, but I'm feeling kind of talkative.smile.gif

Hello and welcome.

your rig is not showing in your sig, did you use Rig Builder top right of the screen?
click on it to enter your system specs so they show in the drop down arrow as mine
does at the bottom of this post. smile.gif

Yes I used Rigbuilder. Do I need to do anything else after saving my rig?

Edit: I failed to even make a signature. Should be working now.
