So here is my question, With this motherboard, Processor, and Cooling system.
What is the max I would be able to over-clock my processor.... with breaking my pc?
I currently have it over-clocked at 2.78GHZ Stable.
I used Prime 95 for 30 minutes and tested the system under a full load and reached a max temp of 75c (Not sure if that is to hot?) Someone please let me know if this is ok!!
If I go any higher than that it freezes.
Now I am very new to over-clocking and I did it in the (Bios) so I am not even sure if I did that right.
I have seen online that people are getting the same processor to a stable 3.2GHZ!!
But I don't know if its because they have another motherboard. or are using a different program to over-clock.
I have also heard that the amount of ram that is in a system can make a difference in over-clocking.
So here is the other part of my question, would I be better off with a really heatsink and fan combo for this overclocking or is the current "Corsair Watercooling System better?"
