My first post and i am new to over clocking i have just built my new PC.
CPU - INTEL QUAD Q9450 - 2.6 Ghz MOBO: ASUS RAMPAGE EXTREME GPU - 1x SAPPHIRE ATI RADEON 4870X2 (2GB on board memory) COOLING: AIR COOLED ZALMAN FAN ( GOOD ONE) PSU - 700W TAGAN - QUALITY PSU KIT
Corsair 4GB 2x 2GB PC3 12800 Dual Channel DDR3 Memory TW3X4G1600C9DHX XMS3-1600 C9 DHX # Part - TW3X4G1600C9DHX # Each module pair is tested together at 1600MHz # Tested together at 1600MHz, Vdimm = 1.80V, at latency settings of 9-9-9-24 # 100% tested at 1600MHz in high performance DDR3 motherboards
I have never overclocked before but have bought the very best i could with my budget.
Was wondering if anyone has the same ram, processor and motherboard who could help me with settings etc.
I don't want to damage anything just want the best settings voltages etc for the ram cpu and know what to leave on Auto what to enable and what to disable.

Read the sticky in the CPU section of OCing.
i am reading it now cheers mate - getting a lil familiar with the site too.
If anyone else has similar specs can you post any tips etc cheers.
Every OC is unique, using someone else's settings won't necessarily work.
