ah ur right, give the ram +.2
dont give the chipset more, it doesnt need it, and the pci-e doesnt need it
beleive me well get 4.0 on that thing, not too long ago I was in your position too i was stuck at 3~3.2 ghz on this processor
so far we have the following recipe:
- D805 (best ocing processor)
- Gigabyte DS3 board (best budget oc board)
- G.SKILL ram (which OC very well)
However, a crucial part of ocing is a good PSU with a large amount of amps on a single +12V rail. Like 30+ amps on ONE +12 rail... The CoolMax has 18A on one and 16A on another...so that gives you a total of what maybe 20~22 amps...
the 805 at 4.0 GHZ with the 7600GT(stock) requires a MINIMUM of 26-30 amps!
your PSU might not help us!, but hey lets see how far we can get with it... if u have $100 or so lying around invest it in a GOOD CHEAP OCING PSU:
