I am fairly new to overclocking and have a few questions. My Motherboard is made by asus and has easy overclock features built in.
The 2 main ones are to set overclock profiles at 5%,10%,15%,20%,30% and to set the DRAM at 667,800,1066Mhz.
Currently I have my overclock set to 15% and it's running perfect no issues and temps are 40 degrees on the cpu and 42 degrees on the gpu which is the same it runs at idle on the default 2.8ghz. I have not tested this under load yet though. My ram is DDR2 667Mhz, my question is can I safely set this to 800Mhz or even higher? also would 20% OC prob be max on stock cooling?
