Hello Overclock.net

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone! I just joined a little while ago. I really want to get into overclocking to see what potential my system has and what it can do. This is my first build ever and so far im really happy with it. Let me know what you all think!

AMD Athlon ii x3 450 Rana 3.2 GHz
ASRock 880GHX/USB3 ATX
GSKill (2x2GB) DDR3 1333
Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 1GB DDR5
Apevia 700W Aqua PSU
Rosewill Challenger Mid Case

( btw the screen shot thumb is my first overclock...I had used the turbo 50 auto overclocking software that came with the asrock board but it was never stable..just ran prime 95 blend tests for 12 hours no issues)

Hey there, and welcome to OCN

First of all, tidy up those cables
Second, don't use software to overlook your CPU (shiz will go
wrong) use the BIOS instead
Third, enjoy your stay

Woah, when did we get a flame emoticon? Pimp!

Go ahead and put your hardware into the "System Specs" menu under the User CP tab. It can organize all of your specs so you don't have to repost them constantly.

welcome to OCN (:
a great thing to know is if you ever want to sell anything on this website you will need to build rep (:

in order to do so, you must help others and if their posts are helpful in any way and they leave you good rep, your golden!

the limit to start to sell things i believe is around 30 (:

<----- please leave good rep for me if i helped you out!
thanks!

Welcome - I recently joined myself - and already loving the OCN - Good people willing to help each other.

But as there is already said - use BIOS for OC'ing you CPU, instead of some program - much safer - really.

Btw .. The CPU Cooler looks kindda stock - maybe you should considering changing that for an aftermarket one - you can get them in all price ranges really - Much better, because they are most of the time much better of keeping you CPU cool.

Good luck - let us know what your system are capale of
