post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, im putting together a new build (Just paid for it) Just the basic PC to get me though till december,

my specs are

GIGABYTE 880GM-UD2H MICRO ATX 1.3 REV PCI-E 2.0 (16X)

AMD PHENOM II BLACK EDITION X2 550 3.1 GHZ ( want to try to overclock to 3.8 ghz or try to unlock all cores)

ARCTIC FREEZER PRO 7 REV.2

4GB CORSAIR 1333 UNBUFF,

XFX HD 5830 1GB DDR5

XFX PRO 550W CORE EDITION 12V 44A


Now i'v never built my own PC before, so for my first time, i was looking to try and overclock my processer to 3.8ghz, or unlock all cores and overclock to 3.2ghz,

since iv never done overclocking in my life, how do u go about it? its something i want to try as u have to start at some point if ur going to learn, my motherboard comes with a disk for overclocking as well

I wouldn't recommend using this motherboard for high TDP unlock/overclock (unless you have the 880GMA variant)
Also, DDR3-1600 is the way to go; for the same price you get much more OC flexibility
Ther may be better coolers than the price than the Freezer Pro also

Here's a good place to start http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ing-guide.html
It'll teach you the "How To's" of OCing plus gives a good path to follow.
Study the link one area at a time, learn your bios, than learn as you go. Most all the info you'll need is there.

Heed xd 1771's advice to keep from causing damage (x2 CPU=ok, x4 CPU= not good). As questions come up just make another post, but it will help you to learn the basic's by studying the thread above.
