Thread Starter 
Hi folks. Finally got my computer up`n running now
Havent had the chance to run any tests on it yet, and after spending hours searching up`n down the forum about noob guides to oc and fine tuning my settings while waiting for my components to arrive im here

Any quick do`s and dont`s when im starting to play with this?

As far as ive understood its a good thing to set the FSB and Mem to a 1:1 ratio? It was so many things to change in the bios so i didnt dare to touch anything. To scared to fry anything in there

So a step to step guide on how to basic oc/tune my HQ, CPU and RAM would be nice

Regards

Welcome to the forum. The only thing I can tell you is watch temps(Realtemp program), keep your voltages low(1.36v or below on that cpu), and take it slow. There are tons of guides just go check a few out should get you started.
