Help cooling my system - Page 4

Great. Anyways, who cares about the heatpipes being exposed? I already has 3 fans with no grills protecting them.

Ahh, what people here on OCN will do in the name of performance...

Good luck with the install, and hopefully you won't need to break out the drill... but it'd be pretty cool to see those heatpipes sticking out there.

Now that I have the cooling down, can someone help me out with overclocking? I have never tried it before, and frankly, I have no idea where to start. Based on my system specs, can someone give me some tips or maybe a guide to help me out. I really don't want to fry anything...

Try looking through this guide

http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...-guide-10.html

and check out the other ones in here that should get you started at least... then when get stumped, post a question in the CPU forum.

Good Luck!

Thanks a lot logan, you've been a massive help.

EDIT: Last question (I know, I've said that before but I'm serious this time). When I get my HSF, should I have the fan on the side of the heatsink that is closer to the rear of the case, sucking air away and out the back, or should I have the fan on the side of the heatsink that is closer to the front, blowing air through the heatsink and towards the back?

well some tests show that push air setup and pull air setup generally give +- a degree or two the same temperatures. i would probably push air through the heatsink fins then when it blows out the back use the exhaust case fan to pull it out of your system
