Hi guys, so i've just bought myself a new system and am just about ready to get everything under way. I wanted to reach out to you guys and see if you could provide with some tips/guides for overclocking some hardware listed below. It wouldn't be my first overclock but i've been out of the game for over 5 years so i'm rusty and don't want to assume i know what i'm doing just yet. Here's what i've got and what i'm trying to accomplish:
Antec Twelve Hundred 3 x 120mm front fans, 2 x 120mm rear fans and the 200mm top fan (would consider adding the side fan if needed) This case is a monster!!!
Core i7 920 OC'd to something around 3.5~3.6GHz if at all plausible with the gear i have & Xigmatek Dark Knight S1283V
OCZ Gold 1600 Tri channel kit 3x2gb (not sure what i'd need to do here to follow suit with the cpu)
Saphire Radeon HD4890 1GB Factory OC'd to 1GHz core (dont think i need to change anything here but i'm open to suggestions if there's any way to get the gpu a bit cooler ie: swapping the thermal paste, better cooling solution for it etc...) & LG W2442pa-bf
2 x 640GB WD Caviar Black 32ms raid 1
Would be using AC 5 for thermal paste
I'm going to be doing something like 60%-70% of the time on the pc gaming and basically the balance split between movies and web. Let me know if i missed any info and what guides you would suggest me looking at to get the basics right on OC'ing a core i7. Thanks in advance for your always helpful responses!
