Solved I get how to Overclock.. But where should I start? Tags: Overclocking RAM Last response: October 16, 2010 9:54 PM in Overclocking Share kolkim October 6, 2010 7:16:37 AM If you read my other topic disregard it, I somehow got it back to normal by switching some things to auto then back to manual and removing some programs. This is my first time overclocking so nooby questions: I want to overclock my CPU and Ram, Cpu is a AMD Phenom II 955 Negro, and Ram is G.Skill Ripjaws 1600 7-8-7-24 Ram first because It seems easier, what could possibly speed it up? Should I lower timings to 7-7-7 or 6-7-6 because I can't raise the MHZ anymore. then should I change voltage? Anybody have a good benchmark program I could download? I can't find any free ones..

One question tho, my Graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce 460 preclocked by the company, Gigabyte with 1gb memory. If it's preclocked am I able to overclock it? m 0 l Best solution d1rtyju1c3 a b K Overclocking October 6, 2010 3:23:28 PM You can probably do a mild OC on the CPU and Ram without changing any voltages or timings. If you are using the stock cooler I wouldnt recommend OCing the CPU. benchmarks http://downloads.guru3d.com/Benchmarks-&-Demo%27s_c6.ht... http://downloads.guru3d.com/Generic-Benchmarks_c7.html Stability test Prime95(32bit, 64bit) http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=103 Under 100% load (using Prime95) your max temp should not exceed 62c that is the max safe temp for your CPU.
