OC'ing advice/tips puhlease.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well, basically i've been part of the forums for a few months know, but I got tremendously sidetracked by Case Mods, Hardware, and anything and everything else, but what I came for. The need to know on how to get myself a decent overclock.

Specs are sig rig, but it's a Q6700 socketed in a 780i motherboard. Here's my VID.



Tuniq tower keeps it respectably cool, my room's a constant 80+ degrees. My landlords a prick but i'm moving out in January so that's not an issue really.

Should I lap? Is it worth voiding the warranty? CPU is 3 months old.

I'd like to hit 3.0 for starters, then push it when I switch to H2O. However looking for guides on the 780i has proven fruitless. From what I gather however the 750i is pretty much the same thing.

What do you guys recommend for guides to get me started, and what would you rate my setup as in terms of OC-Friendly?

Any and all help will be appreciated, thanks a lot fellows.

Look through my sig for overclocking links.

The VID is pretty good, and I'd say 4.0ghz is definitely possible (especially with water).
