opinions on capabilities of new system

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
hey guys i've been away form oc'ing for about 2 years now and i decided to get some new toys to play with since i'm setting one up that will do some dx10 gaming.

i ordered this yesterday:

EVGA nForce 680i SE SLI

e6320

4 x 512mb geil ddr2-800 (4-4-4-12)

what kinds of speeds would you say i could see out of this on an aircooled system? I want something sort of stable, i'm not trying to break any world records here, just trying to get the most amount reasonable out of the system.

thanks in advance

I've put together my friend's E6320 rig and they overclock extremely well. 1.83Ghz to 2.8Ghz with default voltage. I am using stock cooler with Arctic Silver 5

Idle: 29C
Load: 48C
Ambient: 29C

It is possible to overclock while undervolting. Though, there is no tell on how your CPU will perform. Every chip is different.

The board and cpu certainly are good choices, but I'm not too sure about choosing Geil over strong alternatives such as Crucial Ballistix 800 and G.Skill HZ/HK.

Oh well, what's done is done. The Geil will handle fine, but they may not oc quite as well as the others.

Good luck and welcome to ocn.

I'd take a look at those before deciding.

already purchased the parts. the geil was only $87 for 2gb (dealer cost from a friend), and i've always had great luck out of them.

Yeah, I took a 2nd look and edited. Like I said, Geil should do you fine.

Have fun with the new parts ;>.

The XPS 410? Yeah, it's been lovely for a prebuilt. I would have been better off in investing in an entire self-built, but I really wasn't ready for that at the time.

Nice card btw, I may step-up to the 640mb in due time.

This G.Skill or the Ballistix one, but I don't know which Ballistix.

Get those G-skill that TaiDinh pointed out I have them and they really are some of the best IMO.
