My system is listed below. I have an intake fan and an exhaust fan, with my hyper evo 212 fan pushing air to my exhaust fan. My case has side ventilation with the ability to attach a fan because of the cpu heatsink (can i attach it on the outside)???
I have MSI afterburner and MSI Kombuster and I have looked at them a little bit and ran some tests in Kombuster. I have also downloaded the hardware temps checker.
My question is where to start with over clocking and testing out how stable my cpu/gpu will be and how much they both can take. Any recommendations on benchmarks or tests to run are well appreciated.
Benchmark with Prime95, OCCT, or IBT (Intel Burn Test)
Your limitations are explained in the guide - Primarily thermal. Increase volts = increase temps. OC til can't OC no mo', at lowest volts possible, test and try keep temps under 80-85c mark when testing
