Hi guys, I am considering buying the following rig:
-Overclocked Intel® Core™ i7 930 Quad Core Processor (3.36GHz, 8MB Cache)
-Single 1GB GDDR5 ATI Radeon™ HD 5870
-6GB Triple Channel 1333Mhz DDR3
-500GB - SATA-II, 3Gb/s, 7,200RPM, 16MB Cache HDD
-Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64bit, English
My main concern is overclocking the i7 930 to 3.36GHz. Obviously it is a very moderate overclock and was wondering if it was compatible and would run efficiently with 6GB Triple Channel 1333Mhz DDR3. I've read that 1600Mhz is recommended for overclocked CPUs, but would rather not spend the extra money if I didn't need to. Like I said, it is a very moderate overclock so is there any point in getting the 1600MHz? Any feedback on my build would be greatly appreciated.
