Suggestions for settings to overclock my Rig

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys new to the site and to Overclocking in general. (NOOB) I know.

Can anyone here give me a few suggestions for settings to overclock my rig CPU and GPU. I think the specs are below. I don't want to push things to far but would like to overclock a bit. I have air cooling and I mean a ton of it. It is cold in that box.

If you have any suggestions please let me know.

Thanks a bunch for any help you may have.



I have two 8800gt's in SLI mode as well. I don't think it says that below.

This is a repost from the Welcome Fourm. I hope this is the right place to ask?

Well with stock CPU cooling you aren't really gonna get anywhere. But to overclock your CPU you start in the BIOS, and the GPU you would use something like Rivatuner or EVGA precision.

Ok thanks for the tip. Can anyone suggest some settings to try with this setup below? How about a recommendation for the GPU settings to overclock the 8800gt's

I have NTune installed and the core clock is set to 600 and the core memory is set to 900 Stock. What do you think I can up those too?

I know the Xeon e3110 can be overclocked pretty easy as well. What could I try to do that. It is stock cooling. I have an EVGA Mobo 780i.

Any help at all would be awesome.

Thanks to anyone that responds.

you should really invest in a aftermarket cooler to prevent your chip from dying sooner. i recommend the TRUE. (Thermalright Ultra-Extreme)

Ok so I should leave the CPU alone I guess for now till I get an after market cooler for it. Has anyone here OC'ed their e3110 on the stock cooler without any troubles?

How about the GPU Settings. I'm looking for some suggested settings for a Stock XFX 8800gt Alpha Dog edition (Basic Model) (600 core/900 memory) in SLI mode?

You wont be able to overclock at all with that stock cooler, it will not be able too keep your chip in safe temperatures. As for the 8800GTs, try to hit 700/1800/1000

Thanks for the help ARJY. I won't touch the CPU at all for now. I'm happy with the 3.0ghz for now anyway and a little nervous to mess with it anyway.

What app would you suggest to OC the GPU? I have NTune right now but I've read a few things that people don't really like it.
