Back to overclocking - last overclock was a 386

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Greetings enthusists,

The title says it all I started in highschool in 86,87 overclocking 8086, 80286 and finally 80386 chips and memory. These were days of soldering new clock sets into the boards and "add on" boards cobbed to the 3 layer green flaky fiberglas motherboard. Some were really ugly and total hacks but it worked. I seem to remember 30 mhz as fast.

Anyway im back and want to share my first build in 20+ years. Im trying for a air cooled 3770k overclocked through intel turbo only. I think im there but want to have some confirmation. I have water cooling in a box but dont think i need it.

I know no questions but where should I post?

Guy, post anywhere you have a question.

By watercooling in a box what do you mean?

Did you get something like an XSPC rasa, or a corsair H100?

Welcome on Ocn and welcome back in modern cpu now it not 30mhz but 3000mhz + rolleyes.gif


And for overclocking http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/cpu-air-cooler/hyper-212-evo/ is a great cooler to start


You overclock the default clock the turbo is worth nothing smile.gif 3.5 default and turbo max 3.9ghz so you can aim at 4.2 4.5ghz if temp is not a problem


I recommend hwinfo64 for temperature reading and all http://www.hwinfo.com/download.php just take care to not click on pub they are everywhere

If you have any other question you can pm me or go here

Awesome...you beat me by a CPU generation. My first was a 486DX2 66 running at 80. Good times

Welcome back! I did some OC'ing on a 486dx2 and a pentium MMX 166mhz in my youth and I am glad to say that the days of buying windshield repair kits is over!! lol. Good luck on your overclock and dont be shy in asking questions. There is a huge wealth of knoweledge on this site from people who really know their stuff(i wish i was one of these but I am not). I currently have an AMD fx chip so I cant really help you with the i7's but there are a ton of people that can. Remember no question is a stupid question unless it isnt asked.
