New AMD 4000+ SD rig looking for some OC specs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Was wondering if anyone could spec how to overclock this setup. Last time I built a AMD system was the old 386 dx 40 so has been quite some time. I wanted a pretty decent gaming machine and noticed AMD is at the top of the market of that. Listed below are the specs of my new machine and looking to get some feedback on overclocking with this new rig. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I would recommend another board like a dfi or asus or simliar sorta companies. i would also recommend you to buy a slightly less flashy card right now , as dx10 will be coming soon(to the best of my knowledge) and since it isnt backwards compatible ( i think). so , unless you are ready to spend on a card again, might be worth holding back for a bit

That rig is giong to be amazing. Did you already buy the 4000+? You may be able to save some money and get the 3700+ because those things are OCing like no other right now. Also, are you getting the CNPS7000 because of space constraints? If not, then I would recommend the Big Typhoon or the Zalman 9500(I think thats the model number anyway). Lastly, I'm not sure about the MSI board, someone may be able to tell you about that more, but the ASUS a8n-sli or a8n32-sli or the dfi lanparty are solid ocing boards. Just some suggestions, but the rig is going to be amazing no matter what.
