G'Day everbody!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello overclockers!
My name is Jack, im 15, from Perth Western Australia, the most isolated capital city in the most isolated state in the most isolated country in the world....

I bought a new computer in late december for playing games, schoolwork etc, but i was never and enthusiust for anything other than playing, surfing the net and general stuff. I read a bit about cool gaming machines and found many were overclocked, which excited me, as i always want more grunt for better frame rates!

My specs:
Asus P5K - SE mobo
Intel C2D E6850 33ghz OCed to 3.55
cooling is 1 Tt 120mm fan and stock intel CPU fan
430w Tt PSU
2gb Samsung RAM 5-5-5-18
Nvidia 8800GT oced to 702 core 987 memory
Raid 0 with 2 400gb 7200rpm HDDs
Tt Matrix case

ive probably forgotten some stuff

Ive used Asus's ocing utility Ai Booster for my current overclocking just slowly bumping up the FSB and stresstesting, my 24/7 speed is 3553mhz. My only cooling is the fans mentioned above, so more heat isnt good, they are already 60-61 loaded...

I am planning to buy a new PSU, maybe a 700w, a new Heatsink for CPU and GPU, some more fans and trying to increase the speed using the bios(upping voltage, fsb etc)

On last 3dmark06 run i scored 12887, im trying to break 13k, so more tuning is needed, im planning to try adjusting the mem timings next.

well that took a while to type....

Hello to everybody
Jack

P.S please dont disregard me because of my age...

Hi Man!

15 soon and I'm from Melbourne! Just when I thought I was the only one down under! BTW I am getting a better score in 3DMark06 14268. Which 8800GT do you have? I'm sure you can overclock it more! Your system is quite similar to mine! You should get the THermalright Extreme and put a Yate Loon fan on it mate! That should get you 4.0Ghz plus! Oh and go to User COntrol Panel and add a system to your signature, makes people who try to help you a lot easier

hey there, nice to know im welcome!

I increased fsb to 400, benched and got 13090, but then failed orthos after a while, so back down to 391 fsb...

I think needs more vcore, i get 1.36 vcore idle, but at load its 1.28 (is that vdroop?) so ill try that on the weekend and bring back my results! wish me luck!

BTW, i had an idea of creating a OC log, so when ever i do something more, or have a question, i just update one thread, rather than creating a new one each time. Im a newb so i need help!

I havent spotted a section that this would fit in, can a mod point me in the right directon?

@ danylu: I like your machine! Your lucky to be able to afford that, what i got is the best i could afford, went halves with my parents, id love to get a quad core and some better cooling.

Welcome
Don't worry about your age, I think you're probably about average age on here. Experience over age, thats what they say, eh?
Hope you have a long and enjoyable stay.
One tiny word of advice - If you want stability - software overclocking probably isn't your best bet. Try overclocking in the BIOS. Its almost as easy once you're in and the people on here will help you all they can with it .

Thanks mate!

Oh and the thing all up costed $2500 in Jan/Feb and I went halves with my parents. Oh and right now a quad core isn't the best thing for value. Oh and your overclock is pretty good for the cooling you have.
