1. About overclocking, is it safe? I'm probably going to overclock it to 4.5 or 4.7 Ghz, is that a good amount. And do I have to overclock it for games to run more smooth. Lastly, would a Hyper 212+ have the same performance as a Thermaltake Frio or Cooler Master V6GT?
2. Should I stick with a GTX 570 or get an ASUS GTX 560 Ti
3. How's the cable length for my power supply?
ya why_me told me that too and he showed me an article that said when it would be enforced when i we had to start paying taxes on the things we bought there. just a week ago (that is after the date the article said the taxes would be enforced) i tried to buy something and no taxes. really i dont see why they made that bill. it just makes me not want to spend money. idiots in the CA legislature. and i just checked right now and it says estimated taxes to be collected: 0$. seeing a 0 by that phrase is always nice.
