First off, I am entirely new to overclocking and I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. I think it would be best for me to read the sticky's etc. before I do anything further...
I just upgraded my system and here are the specs:
GTX 770 oc Windforce 4GB
Asus Z87-Pro (yes the ugly gold one)
16GB Corsair Vengeance 1600
XSPC RayStorm 750 RS360
Samsung 840 256GB SSD + 2TB media drive
Thermal take Litepower 700W PSU
Thermal take Armor + case
I upgraded the CPU, motherboard and GPU a couple of days ago and bought/installed the Raystorm kit today (after some case modification). All of the components I just bought were based on recommendations from users on this forum.
I ran the Asus AI Suite 3 4-Way Optimisation and it stopped at 5100mhz and then auto-reset my PC. If I'm reading it right, it's now saying that I am clocked at 5Ghz with a CPU increase of 38%... Is that even possible?
My CPU temp sits at 20 degrees celsius at idle, and around 40-42 degrees after playing BF3 on ultra for 30 minutes, see screenshot below (sorry email confirmation isn't getting through so I can't embed picture):
