hows it go'en eh ?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi , thought I would post , introduce myself ...

new to the forum , been reading a bit here , and on some other sites , just looking in to overclocking and the 'how to's' of it .

really just looking for a small boost , am thinking I will get to 3 gig no problems , but am not overly sure I have it figured out quite right. also in it for the learning , figure if I learn to exploit what is in my computer, I will , in the process learn more about what makes it tick.

my desktop is a quicky replacement build for my dearly departed first build , went a little cheap on parts cause I am thinking some of the front end stuff needs to catch up with itself a bit , not all that many quad core choices , and have read some less than rave reviews about ddr3. Also I just got a new camera so I was a bit tight for cash , after I get my new lens I am going to get back to parts shopping. will surely be looking in here for opinions , lots of performance minded folks here ...

well I have only posted one time here , and received a response quite quickly , that is great , some sites are not so kindly and just ignore posters... also there is just tons of great info on the boards ...

Cheers !

Welcome to OCN!!

I can definitely vouch for that CPU+mobo combo, you should see at least 3.2 Ghz, maybe even 3.6 if you're ambitious and have a good chip.
