What do you recommend for my setup?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys

I have finished building my new machine and will be getting my new processor tomorrow, everything is stock standard so I need some advise on overclocking. overclocking utilities, benchmark utilities and tests and most importantly some good hardware to assist in cooling and overclocking.

Thanks

For Air cooling, look into the Big Typhoon, the zalman 9500, or the xp-120/90. All for around $50.

For benchmark utilities/stress programs, use these:
CPU-Z
Superpi 1.4
Prime 95
OCCT
3Dmark 05
PCmark 05
Memtest 86+ (for memory)

For hardware monitoring (temps, volts, fans) use these:
Speedfan
Motherboard monitor
Bios.

That should get you going...all programs are free.
