Hey Guys, First time overclocker with new parts asking for advice

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey there, as you can probably tell from the title i've never OC'd before. All my previous PCs have been branded ones (1 HP and 1 Compaq)

Basically, i've been slowly upgrading my system from standard as follows:

Standard PSU switched for a 750W one that i can't currently remember the name of.

7500LE changed for 8800GTS 320

2x512MB DDR2 PC-4200 changed for 2x2GB OCZ ReaperX PC8000

CPU is still an E6300.

I've just bought an eVGA 780i and was wondering what you guys would consider a "safe" voltage and FSb multiplier etc.

What speeds to E6300s generally OC to?

Thanks in advance for your help

Please fill out your sig rig its under your user cp

http://processorfinder.intel.com/det...px?sSpec=SL9SA

Here is your cpu. it list your safe voltage as .85-1.5v since you have a low multi you only can get about 2.7-3ghz. You will also need a good cooler I recommend

or if you have room the one i should have bought

Just testing my System info while waiting for more edits.

Yeah, room for cooling shouldn't be an issue with my case, unless theres something in the way on the MoBo.

If you have the room go for a 120mm cooler just be aware they are tall and may hit the outside panel in a small case. if you go with xigmatek get the mobo retainer the pushpins suck only 3 of mine are holding the other one will not and i was afraid of breaking something so now I wait on the retainer.
