Just built my first computer!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey all. I'm new here. Just built my first computer and I'm here to learn more then just basic computer building. I want to overclock my rig and I I have no idea where to start. Pm me some resources please. This is what I got.

My rig- All in a Bitfenix Prodigy
Asus Impact mini-itx
Intel i5 4670k
Asus 270x TOP 4gb
AMD R9 Gamer Memory 2400mhz 2x8
Samsung Evo 250gb
Corsair H105..soon replacing fans with gentle typhoons

So first off my memory is not showing as 2400mhz. I need help here.

And also should the h105 pump connect to the cpu fan header? Or does it not matter?

Please send links to resources so I can learn

Hey there welcome to OCN!

It all looks good as for the H105 it doesn't usually particularly matter...

first download these -

CPU-Z

GPU-Z

MSI AFTERBURNER

these will help with overclocking the cpu and gpu.

as for overclocking your 4670k, here is a good page -

http://rog.asus.com/254052013/maximus-motherboards/recommended-settings-for-overclocking-maximus-vi-motherboards/

There is also a video on it, you can find it easily on the asus website or on youtube.

Download some stress tests for your cpu and gpu such as prime95/intelburntest and unigine heaven/unigine valley/3dmark11 to test stability of your system after overclocking.

welcome to OCN.

So you don't think better fans will make an improvement on temps? Or at least loudness. The stock fans are pretty loud

the corsair fans are pretty loud, if you can drop $15 per fan get some scythe gentle typhoon ap-15 fans, they perform better and they are almost silent. well worth the money imo.

Welcome to florida lol tongue.gif enjoying it?
