New to OCing Need Mentor!! :D

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok well im currently running a Gateway FX6831-01 with an i7 860 , 8 gigs of ram , ATI 5850, W7 (64bit) , all running on an Intel H57 Express. My main intention is gaming ( Black Ops , Rift , Crysis 2). It currently has the stock ABS 750w power supply and i am in the process of picking up a GTX 580 to swap in for the 5850. I was just wondering if anyone could give me some pointers on Ocing it even if its minor, or even if someone wants to tell me "NO" don't try to oc a name brand PC on the stock cooling / hardware.


Thanks for the time, Matt

1st question is does it have the Overclock feature unlocked? If not there is nothing you can do..
EDIT: NOT just TURBO speed crap

About the only thing that would overclock in that rig is the 5850 or 580 thats on its way.
