And I want to spend as little money on everything else as possible (not at the expense of the components quality, though). I'm thinking of buying P8P67 LE mobo to save some money, though I've read it has certain overclocking issues.
So I ask You for an advice on the remaining parts, thanks in advance.
I meant CPU overlocking. I've read that overclocking is only possible through the AI Suite software. I want to know whether I have to run the software for the overclocking to be in effect or is it set and forget? And how much risk is there with this kind of overclocking?
as long as you go slow like 5% at a time its pretty safe. each processor has its own place where it damages rather than glitches. so dont double your frequencies, that will push it past the safe point for sure.
you should start a bit high though. i generally start at about 70% of what others say a processor can get to. 70% of the difference that is.
