Hi all, I just got some proper good advice on what cooler i needed to OC my pc and now i want to learn how to OC it safely, hopefully reaching 4GHz My system is self built by me and here are a few internals listed. Intel i7 950 LGA1366 3.06GHz GA-X58-USB3 mb 12gig OCZ DDR3 1333MHz Triple channel XTC (will be removed) XFX Radeon 6870 GPU 3x1TB Samsung F3 HDD CoolMaster Silent Pro500W PSU Antec 300 with 5 case fans (3xExhauts 2xIntakes) On Order........ Corsair H80 Hydro Series High Performance CPU Cooler Corsair Memory Vengeance Black 24GB DDR3 1600MHz CAS 9 XMP Triple Channel RAM Cpuz added for further info... Now, i know diddly squat about OC'ing so i am at your mercy so to speak. I figure there will be much reading and learning to do but i am prepared to listen and learn so i get it right. All i know is OC'ing is usualy done in the bios to which i am not afraid to venture into with your guidence but Gigabyte also do a utility program called "EasyTune6" which appears to easliy OC the system but i await your opinions on how to do this the correct way. Any further screen shots or info i will get for you so here goes i guess lol Thanks for any advice/info offered, Regards, Lee. P.S.... before you ask lol i need to max out the RAM and get the max out of my CPU for the high end 3D software i use for modeling and animation, Texture maps and lighting are very CPU and RAM depenant.
