I just bought this motherboard and this is my first build to overclock on. I am posting to see if my computer info showed up correctly as my signature.

Take overclocking slow it can be really frustrating. I like your build but hate your PSU haha. I hope you can hit 4Ghz or 4.1 with low timing on your ram.

Welcome to OCN, and this forum in particular. There's a very knowledgeable and great group of guys/gals in this forum.

Ask questions if you need help, and you'll probably get very quick answers.

Good luck overclocking your rig!

Yeah, I have heard some mixed reviews about the PSU. I bought it about 2 years ago on my previous build for a little over $200. It was one of the cheaper ones for that price. It died once about 2 months after I bought it and I RMAed it, but the new one has been running strong ever since. I have gotten the processor up to 4GHz but it crashed almost instantly when running Prime95. I was able to run Prime95 all night last night at 3.8GHz without issue. Any ideas on why it might have crashed? I have it running at 1.4volts, should I bump that up some? I have the northbridge overclocked to 2600 also.

Overclock one at a time, ie CPU, then CPU-NB, then RAM, then throw it all together. So i would put the CPU-NB down to stock 2000 then up the voltage a lil to hit 4Ghz. Personally my machine is stable at 4Ghz with 1.45v. You can use that for a reference move the voltage up or down how you need.
After that go for the CPU-NB which mine is special they say, im at 2.8Ghz with 1.28v. It usually takes more voltage to keep the CPU-NB stable but your chip might be special also.
Since you are running 8gigs and Ripjaws i wouldnt try to get lower timings i would just try to get them to run at their rated speeds.I had RipJaws 9-9-9-24@1.65v they sucked balls, since then i have returned those and bought OCZ platium 7-7-7 1600@1.9v. I have them overclocked to the max and i have to have a fan on them or they will crap out in an hour of prime95.

Check my "down and dirty" guide to overclocking our setup, link on the first page. It should help you understanding a bunch about how to get these clocked strong and stable, and relatively quickly.
