My Overclocking Overview

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
First off id like to thank everyone on this forum that has helped me out over the last few weeks. I came here without any knowledge of overclocking and i think i have come along way...so........

Thanks guys !!!


Some of you may ask why i bothered with such a small cpu...i figured if i was going to fry a proc. then it might as well be one worth $300 instead of one worth $1400.

The next step in my build is to finish the water chiller unit so i can have a completely fan less rig.
Then i can add the 2nd 8800 and the water blocks to the GPU's, HD and ram.
I'm going to wait a couple weeks before i order the new QX6700 (prices are supposed to drop soon i hear)

I'm still awaiting the arrival of the TripleHead2go unit (probable stuck at customs)
Once that's in i will get the three 19" lcd's on the mounting arm up and running (woot...widescreen gamming)

Only thing i cant seem to do is tighten up the memory timing at all
Any changes i make to the timings ends up with errors.
but according to this article at ClubOverclock
I shouldn't have to worry about leaving it at 5-5-5-15

PS:Steady run with prime95 for 12hrs

Here are a few screen shots of what i have achieved.

One of the cleanest builds I've seen.
