Hello, newbie here.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Just wanted to say hi. I purchased new computer parts last weekend (with the help of a friend) and now I am waiting for them to come in so I can put it together. This will be the first computer that I will have built from the ground up and its pretty exciting. I don't know a whole lot about over clocking or hardware. He mentioned doing this to my new system so I figured I better read up on it and learn a little bit which brought me here!

welcome to OCN!!

i have one comment for you though....i don't think you will be able to overclock using an Intel motherboard. I may be wrong however.

Welcome!!

I would highly suggest that you not try to overclock a new system if you have never done it before.. Built up some cheapo.. and start playing with voltages and timings and such.. until you have a feeling for it.

That is probably a good idea. The friend that help me build this has some experience. I have an old P4 that I am currently using that I could mess around with.

HI and WELCOME to OCN
Do a basic set up with the MB set on non conductive surface, PS, CPU/HSF, RAM, video card/monitor, KB/mouse out side of the case first.
You should get a full BOOT and access to the BIOS screen. Its well worth the extra time to assure the system is good to go into the box
