New To Overclocking! Time to break my old PC!
Hey guys, I am repetitively new to overclocking as I am currently running an i7-4700k and just push the turbo button on my motherboard! Thats all my overclocking experience! Woo! So now that is out of the way, the real reason I am here.
I am upgrading my fiances old fx 8350 on a gigabyte 990fx gaming motherboard. I do plan to upgrade the CPU cooler as it has a 212evo to something beefier to handle the overclocking I want to try. So I need advice on where to start with this to maximize the performance as I will just use it as a computer server and to "learn" overclocking before I tinker with her new build.
As for ram overclocking I threw in the most overkill ram I replaced from mine into hers which is the G.Skill TridentX DDR3 2600 (PC3 20800) Timing 10-12-12-31. The motherboard only supports 2000mhz but I am wondering if I should mess with timings?
Any and all beneficial advice is welcome as I am new and trying to learn to understand more about unlocking my computers hidden potential!!
