Totally new to the forum. Looks like a great friendly place. Hope I'm not way off with the etiquette!
I've started reading guides about overclocking and I know there's toooons of information out there so I'm not asking any general advice or howto's about overclocking in general. I am wise enough to RTFM
What I have learned though, is that overclocking is very hardware specific so I'd like to get a little input from the wise sages here on my hardware setup and if there are any known issues, shortcomins, quirks in my hardware setup that I should be aware of before I try overclocking..
Is there anything in there that suggest I should have issues OCing? The Case has four fans, including one 20cm one on top. Should I go for more cooling? I was warned about liquid cooling in this case since the power supply is on the bottom of the case...
Also I heard that this isn't the best MB in the world for overclocking. How severe are my limitations with this set up?
PS: The memory is rated at 800MHZ but it only shows up as 333mhz in CPU-Z instead of 400...is this a MB issue?
Anyway. Hope I'm not out of line with these questions...I know there's information on these individual parts out there but I'd be happiest if I had some professional feedback on my specific setup...thanks people!
I think the AC Freezer 7 Pro is excellent for the price. It may not be the very best air HSF (maybe a few degrees C off...within the margin of error/difference between temp utilities), but when you can get it for $30 (USD), as opposed to $50 or $60+, it really is great value.
