Same processor, same graphics card, same suspicion, thinking of the same OC solution. I'm still on a stock mobo though so am looking to get a new mobo first. Please update if you find any useful advice/get any results, and I'll do the same.
Yes i did find a solution to OC my processor my mobo doesnt allow it so i software oced with Clockgen to 3GHz. It has helped a little bit but not as much as i have expected but a bit is a bit.
