New build help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So i've pieced together what I would have though to be a decent gaming rig. Problem is, I don't I feel I am getting the performance I was expecting. Can anyone make a suggestion as to what I may need to tweak? I am using the TPU option on my Asus P8P67 Pro mb, in cpu-z it shows that it steps to 4.4ghz which I thought was pretty good without having to do any bios manipulation. Should I get rid of the TPU and manually O/C ? Should I be looking to OC my 2 x Sapphire 6850's? Ram timings? Thanks in advance, I have a lot of questions and I know I should be searching for my answers but I am stuck at work all day thinking about my computer and occasionally my girlfriend without much time to browse. System specs below! Thanks!

You should go ahead and disable the TPU when overclocking, even though you still need the "Turbo" function (which is a separate option).

See how that goes and also, make sure you have c1e and speedstep disabled.
