What do you think?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, I'm not new to comps or overclocking, I have just never done it. I built my new computer as seen in my sig a week or two ago and want to know what you guys think about me overclocking it. I ordered a Zalman 9700nt which will be coming by thur-fri with some AS5. I want to OC' to 2.93, 3.00, or 3.2. OC'ing with my mobo is pretty confusing P35-DS3R, but it came with easytune 5... I just dont know how safe that is. Also do you guys think my powersupply will support a 9800gtx, it provides 22amps on each rail and because it is suppose to be a smaller gpu(65nm or so) it should be less power hungry. Ok thank you.

Hey, dont use any program like ntune or easytune. THey suck. Use ati tool or rivaturner. Its the only way to really overclock and make the settings stick. You can do it, its really easy, and there are hundreds of FAQs on it. As for the powersupply should do, ive seen people last on it. Other than that, wait till all your cooling supplies come in then overclock away!

Will these find the right voltage for me because I think I read somewhere that it takes some crazy high voltage for the e6700 to OC'.
