Overclocking P5N-D & Q6600 & GX2

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Dear all, this is my first ever forum post. Have visited here many times as a guest and love the site.

My question is how can I over clock my Q6600 on my P5N-D board, keeping my GX2 stable and my OCZ GOLD 6400 DDR2 ram from cooking, and no matter how hard I try I really do not know where to begin.

Please can I get some help. all thoughts welcomed.

Regards

Sam

Well first thing is to fill in the information on your system so everyone can see it. Go to User CP at top and then on the left there should be a link named my system or edit system.

I am still a newb myself so I do not want to give information. I think it will be hard to find someone with the exact same setup though. I would start by asking questions on that link and people will see this one and I am sure they will help you. Everyone here is very nice and knowledgeable.

Ok, well I will consider posting on there, another thing to ask is - with my Sythe NINJA passive heatsink - can i reasonably expect it to cool past stock temps.
