possible chance to learn?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i was thinking today ( oh no)!!! I have decided to get my Sig Rig running, for the time being with a XFX-GTS-250-512mb-Core, i had sitting in my other pc. I just ordered the last of the parts i need to finish it. So today i picked up , Windows-7, a Corsair-H70, some fans, And a second gts-250. I planned on putting a second 250 in my other rig anyway.

So im thinking this will be a great chance to get my feet wet, by overclocking the 250,s. I have never overclocked anything, and this is only my second build. So if i fry em im only out a couple 250,s No big deal!! Any advice or tips for a rookie overclocker?

It is alot harder to fry a video card, most software v-mod won't let you put too much voltage on it. Give it a try and it's alot easier compares to CPU but it's also harder to tell if it's completely stable.
