Upgrading My Intel System

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Just came back from Paraguay and brought back some upgrades. The video card and power supply were bought with F@H in mind, while the RAM was just a nice treat since I'm using Kingston budget RAM at the moment.


Components in picture are Corsair TX750, XFX GTX 260 216SP 55nm and two sticks of OCZ Vista Upgrade DDR2 800MHz 5-6-6-18.

Still have to get my OCZ Behemoth (being bought from a member at OCN), a new case, fan controller and a 22" screen for this build to be complete.

For a new case I have a CM Storm Scout in mind, but that may take a while until I have the money to buy, same thing for the screen. The fan controller should be ordered this week.

Tomorrow I should backup all my data and install Windows 7 on both my computer and my brother's. This will be done with the new components in. At that point I'll overclock my CPU back to 3.75GHz and see how far I can take these RAM modules as well as the video card.

Stay tuned for overclocking results and more pictures!

I read a review where they achieved 4-3-3 timings at 800MHz. Guess I'll just have to try for myself.

Awesome RAM. I mean its a step-up.

Great setup.

Thanks! Trying to get the Delta fan on my heatsink to slow down. It's set to silent operation in BIOS, but still at 3000 RPM (load temps don't go above 42ºC). When this is done I'll get all my drivers setup and hopefully do some overclocking.

Gotta wait for my new case for pictures since this doesn't fit all the power supply cables, thus looking hideous. Waiting for the end of the Foldathon to start overclocking.

EDIT: Foldathon ended and first overclocking results!


Shaders at 1544MHz. Not overclocking any other settings because this computer only folds so it's unnecessary heat build-up and a waste of power.
