New to overclocking CPU's....

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all...well i have an AMD 3200+ as you can read from my sig and I'm looking to overclock it. I have read many of the tutorials to get me through it and it looks like the only thing i need to get a good oc is a new PSU (which im getting a 480 watt Antec in about a month) and good cooling which i already have and pretty good RAM.

Right now i have a gig of PNY RAM and i'm going to pick up a gig of this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145450

My question is does that RAM oc well and will i be able to mix my PNY and the Corsair RAM together to get a decent oc? Thanks.

Consider a more powerful PS... 550w, Antec, Forton, Sunbeam ... are a few very good units!

u can mix the two, but its better to have 2 1gb sticks for ocing than 4 512's, and you could go for higher bandwidth memory like some pc4000 from G.Skill or OCZ.... and i may also suggest and even bigger PSU, you can get a sunbeam NUUO 550 watt for about 85$, and they are awesome psu's anything under 500w is starting to get a little small and it will leave you with more options down the road...
