New to Overclock.net and Overclocking

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I am new to overclocking my computer. I hope I can play my part in this community. I just put together my first "REAL" build together. Take a look at the specs and let me know what you think.

You've put together a nice computer! Do you want to overclock the processor?
Oh, and I see your power supply 850W, perhaps a bit too much for specs like that.
850W is more for like the "highest end" pcu's and cards, such as the fastest I7's and stuff like that.
600-700W would have been more appropriate, but 850 won't kill your pc.

If you want some advice for oc'ing that I5 of yours, just ask, and look around on the internet, see if you find anything useful.

Cheers!

Thank you. I do plan on overclocking but I am new to it. I seen a guide posted by an ASUS specialist@ http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1578110. Do you think this is a good place to start? I am having a problem with my computer at cold boot and supposedly this should take care of this issue. Let me know if you might have any more insight on this.

SLI is mainly if you want to have multiple GPU?
