Old System Builder New to OCing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey my name is nick and i have just built my newest comp (last time i built one was over 4 years ago). I have been reading on EVGAs forums and posting a lot about my new system and a lot of the people there and some google searches pointed me here.

Hopefully i can get some help and then turn around and help out some others. Right now i am running stock system due to two days of trying to overclock ending up in nothing but failures. I don't do much gaming since my old PC was a p4 3.0 with 7800gt showing its age but i plan on getting back into it a little more whether or not i get this overclocked.

System specs are below and if anyone has some ideas on where a newb is to start i am more then willing to listen.

Well thanks for having me and i hope to hear some useful information from you all in the future (of even non useful as long as its funny)
