New Beginner Overclocker

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey, I've been wanting to overclock for a long time but never had a reason. Now that my computer is a few years old, I'm going to start overclocking it as much as I can without getting into water cooling. That will happen down the road.

I overclocked my 6800 GT last night from 350/1000 to 425/1166 and it's stable in every game and benchmark program I've run.

I'll be overclocking my AMD 64 3200+ Venice and then anything else that I can

Wanted to say hello and see you around the forums!
