I need some help.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello OC,

It's my first time posting here, and I'm new to overclocking.

I have a few questions.

First of all this might not be related but, is it ok for my ATI 5750 to run at 55 degrees without doing anything?

Second, I have a question about overclocking my CPU. I have a AMD Athlon II 2X 250 3.0 Ghz. I want to overclock it. My cooling is ZALMAN something, when I look inside my computer I see a blue fan. As you can see I'm very new to this stuff. So my question is what are safe voltages and clock speed to run at?

Thanks

Well I dont have one of those cards. But I believe I have heard others say they run warm an noisey under a load.

Take your time, list your system in your sig. That will help others. Take a little time to read the stickies posted for new OCers. That would be a good start. I am no pro for sure but knowledge is your friend and key to OCing. When you have the basics down be patient and take baby steps.The stickies will give you the info you are asking.

I don't know much about overclocking either, on your CPU anyway. But that card should be fine, I'm pretty sure safe temps go up to 90C. Pretty sturdy things.
