hello again everyone,

Just wanna know whats the safest Clock/Speed can i go for my current CPU/System.

I just got my h-50 Install.

my current target is around 3.6 to 3.8 GHz
is that safe for my current Ram and CPU and other components?

Well without knowing what speed your RAM is rated for its hard to say how high that can go, but your CPU will more than likely take you all the way to 4ghz.

i dont get why people OC, i mean i guess its more bang for the buck but the unstable issues, the cooling issues, and it ultimately reduces the life of the cpu!
someone please correct me? or unless OC is matter of opinion??

Because we can

why did we go to the moon ?

This to me seems like a rediculous question being the title of the site

If you don't know what you're doing, then everything you said can become an issue. With proper cooling and some testing, there will be no stability issues. Also, as long as you stay within Intel spec (and have proper cooling), you won't be reducing the life of your CPU.

Also, it is just worth it. Running at 4.0 compared to stock at 2.66, there is a HUGE difference in performance. Everything is just so much faster.

you can always lower the memory multiplier...

try 20x166 with an 8x multi. that will leave the ram at stock speeds and it will give you an 3.32ghz overclock.

anyways i have the same memory but it runs at higher speeds. u can overclock it to 1600mhz without any problems i guess, but raise the timings to 9-9-9-24.

for a 3.6ghz overclock, set the multi to 20, and the bclk to 180 with a 8x memory multi. this will leave the ram at 1440mhz. try 8-8-8-24 timings. if that doesnt work, raise it to 9-9-9-24.
