Antec Twelve Hundred Tower

Socket 775LGA Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L

750 GB Samsung 7200rpm SATA2 32MB

750 Watt Corsair TX Strømforsyning Link

OCZ 2x 2048 MB Dual Ram DDR II 8000 SDRAM

(775 Pin) Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3GHz

GeForce 9800GTX

First off all, i would like to know what speeds i could safely clock my 9800GTX to on this Motherboard.. Which is easy cause you can do it in windows with Rivaturner..

But id like to clock my Cpu too, not much but a little.. To like 3.4 - 3.6ghz, not more since it's running on stock cooler and Air.. But how to do this, kinda lost in Bios and how to use it? A overclock program called C.I.A.2 does follow this MB, but it gives me warnings when i change to modes like Cruise.. "something about volts not being right"

Im totally Green on this Area please help me

"(sorry for my bad english im from Denmark)"
A motherboard can't bottleneck a graphics card's OC. You'll know when your card is at it's limit. Use Rivatuner and up the core clock by 10mhz then run ATI Tool's Artifact Scanner for 20 minutes. Repeat that process until your card can't pass 20 minutes of the Artifact Scanner and drop it by 5 Mhz. Do the same for the other clock/memory speeds.

Do not use the CIA2 thing. Leave it on default or auto. For a E8400, just do 400x9 and make sure to leave the RAM multiplier at 2.5 if that's 1000mhz RAM or at 2 if you mistyped it instead of 800mhz RAM. I remember E8400s could do 3.6 at stock voltages. Also manually set your CPU voltage. Leaving it on auto will normally overvolt more than necessary which a bad thing since it produces more heat. Set it to what the VID is. Use Core Temp to check for this.

If you need to know more, go read the stickies/FAQs about overclocking.

Your english is fine.

You sure? Try plugging it into the power supply through a 3pin to 4pin molex adapter.

Isn't a bit quick to jump to conclusions already? It might be the heatsink somehow or it's just a bad fan header.

That's normal on the AC 7 Pro (till it heats up).
Plug the 4 pin connector into the cpu fan connector on your mobo.
Bios settings: auto, voltage, or PWN (cpu fan control)
I set mine to PWN when I had one.

I am aware of the cpu vdroop and have compensated for it, does the vdroop problem also plague the ram voltage too? I use the Super Talent DDR2-800's in my sig and the rated voltage is 2.2v. If i add the +0.4 that should be necessary to raise the voltage to 2.2, it never reaches that if i look in the pc health status. I have to bump it up to +0.6v and it still only reaches 2.14v. I dont want to add any more as it is making me kinda nervous. Also I had to replace my psu recently cuz it crapped out on me. The replacement psu didnt change anything though and the voltage is still 2.14v at +0.6v.
