1st Overclock, help please?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm new here at overclock.net and have heard from alot of people online that you know your stuff, I'm in need of some information and I'm proud to become a member of your huge online community

Well down to business, I'm running on an AMD Athlon X2 4200+ and would like some help in the field of overclocking. I'm running on a stock fan ATM and would like to know what you think the max clock I could get with that would be, taking into account I have 1x120mm case fan at the back of my system and 2x80mm's at the front.

Also I'm looking into buying a better cooler fro my CPU, any suggestions that would fit into my £35 (UK here ^^) budget.

Another thing would be my RAM, I'm looking to buy some more, the current 1GB stick is this = Crucial DDR2 667Mhz PC 5300 RAM

And I'm looking to upgrade to at least 2 gigs on my MSI K9VGM-V mobo, what would be the best 2GB stick to get?

Thanks,
Shaydee.

Well,try to maximum overclok WITHOUT rasing volts,qithout volts being raised u won't increase your temperature,and after u buy some decent cooler u can increase volts and further overclok your pc.However check your temps before doiing anything with coretemp which u can find here among downloads

about ram check some on newegg.com .patriot,crucial,corsair.ocz,geilare the best money can buy,i believe

ok, I'll try that soon.

Time to look for some RAM. Does anybody know any good UK sites for cheap RAM?

ok thanks for that guys. I'll be having a look.

Also I'm looking into getting an 8800GTX, what would be a good price? As I'm really looking to get one around when Crysis comes out.

Patience on the 8800 purchase, the prices keep dropping with new versions that keep coming out
