definitely will oc the processor and maybe the v.c. But running stock speeds right now letting the vc break in before messing with it.thanks for the welcome. What do u think about the hardware
post #4 of 6
Looks great for a decent OC! I have always wanted to mess with that processor as mine was only the x4 640 propus and can only be taken so far.

Good choice with Sapphire also thumb.gif

Im glad to hear its all running together! What do you think so far? Perform as expected?
you will see a big performance increase I think when you have the processor OC'd

Ya I am really impressed with the hardware and I'm going to try and get the processor to 4ghz. That's a pretty big leap but I will do it in increments. I'm a big fan of the as rock bios and utilities options it has. This is my second sapphire and the copper piping is big and it evacuates heat well.
post #6 of 6
4ghz is a good goal in general I think.. Well there is plenty of people around OCN and plenty of resources for OC'ing! So best of luck to you thumb.gif
