I would like some advice for an overclocking build. If you guys can help me feel free to post any comments, fsb multiplier rates,...
A friend of mine has got fps drops ingame etc.. and id like to sqeeze the max out of the computer without decreasing the lifetime drastically.
I would like to overclock CPU and GPU..
He has got the following hardware:
What would you like to do with this rig? I really like these 2M Wolfies as they clock without much difficulty.
Have you still got the stock cooler? If so, lets not exaggerate on the FSB speeds and, specially, no overvoltage!
Your current spec is:
12 CPUM * 266 FSB = 3200Mhz
You should be able to get the FSB up to 333Mhz with a 1:1 RAM ratio without changing the multiplier. That would end you up with a 4.0Ghz OC. Which should be doable with your CPU (again, depends on the cooler you have).
Try that for starters and see how it goes. Temperatures should not go above 60ºc on load, ok?
