New OC

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi there ,i 've just built my 1st PC(Specs Below)
I bought most of the stuff for the OC potential but i'm new at this thing
I've read most of the faq's on here for some guidance and i've just started OC my GPU.When i've got that at a satisfactory level i want to move onto the CPU and Chipset.
My case has 3 fans,front and rear plus one on the side directly onto my CPU fan.So i'm wondering what fans do i get next,is it best to get the North and Southbridge coolers before i move onto the CPU cooler?
Also does any chipset cooler fit any board? eg http://www.chillblast.com/product.ph...cat=147&page=1


Cheers for any help Gaz

on my board i have to use a stock chipset cooler due to the fact that my 7800gt overlaps the heatsink. so i cant put a new one on there because they are almost always taller than the stock cooler. ive got my CPU overclocked to 2.5ghz on stock cooling and i dont see a need for aftermarket just yet. so i would say it depends on your temps what cooler you get.
