I need HELP for my new PC

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
so its a
Motherboard : GIGABYTE GA-890FXA-UD5
CPU : AMD Athlon II 640 X4 3.0Ghz
RAM : G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3 1600 PC3-12800 8GB 2x4GB CL9
GPU : Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2GB

Case : NZXT Phantom Special Edition
PSU : 1200W


so I want to overclock it to 3.5Ghz

and i want to change the CPU cooler but i want to put a 20cm on the side too so i just cant decide witch one


My main problem is the RAM and CPU
so it detects it as a 1333mhz so i change it to 1600mhz and change the timings as the should be from the bios

can you give me some suggestions how to overclock the cpu and what to do with the RAM ??


(currently its on stock cooler and stock 3ghz )



Thanks in advance

You really really really REALLY do not need 1200w on that system. that is ridiculous overkill. 850 would suit you and give you headroom as well.

Grab a cooler master 212+ for your cooler. will let you overclock very well.

Well your GPU/RAM is good, the CPU will perform good if overclocked but you could use an upgrade if you feel the need to be a little frisky. 890 eh...so AM3 then....I still have a 720 X3BE and its a great little gamer.

Anyways
Phenom II X6's are $200 now! Frickin crazy.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-849-_-Product
That with the Mugen or H70 at 3.8Ghz-4.2Ghz is straight up ballin'.
Only $30 more then a 970 X4.

I had the power supply so i just used the I had...

sure i was looking up to the Phenom x6 its just that they cost 200euros here and I bouth mine for like 86e .... my old one was athlon 6000 x2at 3ghz

I think that than in few mount i could sell mine and get a nice cpu (when the price drop or new models come out )

i had to decide a x6 and HD5850 1gb or a Athlon x4 and a HD6950 2GB with bualbios and i hear that i can change the bios and make it like a 6970


my old one was a 8800GTS 320mb .....

edit: sorry thought you said a new pc not my new

If you are to do air cooling, alot of the air coolers are really good you can easily find lots of reviews on witch one performs well from googling the model names.

The most important thing about air cooling is getting the heat extracted from the case ASAP! so pick a cooler that will fit and keep good air flow for your case.
