I7-920 and 2x Radeon HD 5850

Is the CPU fast enough to fully take advantage of the graphic cards? Or should i OC? And can i OC without buying a cooling system?

Thanks in Advance

  1. Dangerous oc use stock cooling, your system need higher psu for x2 5850.., ueach problem bottleneck,
    Minimum oc your cpu at 3.7ghz and gpu still default,
    I think use single card and little oc cpu better for you

    Yes, grab a water cooler turn off hyper-threading, set multiplier at 20 and get the CPU up to about 3.6Ghz -- 3.8Ghz then hook up crossfire with the 5850s they perform almost as good as a 5870 that is if they work right and the games use them.
    I just got a sweet water cooling system for 130.00

    Have you tried the bios mod for 5850 ?check out mines
